Papayas are a less exciting mango to me. But in Israel when mango season is nearly over we have to compromise. I love to use papayas in salad because its sweetness enhances this dish and the salt and vinegar in the dressing brings out its flavors in a more savory way.
The bold colors of this dish match the bold flavors! I love the black against the ruby red with the white! If you can’t find black quinoa you can use black rice, or regular quinoa – it will taste almost the same just not be as bold in color!
This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn’t change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
This dish is so simple yet so unique. Apples and butternut squash have forever been best friends and this is a new way to introduce them! You can make the butternut squash up to three days in advance and the apple mixture the day before, just be sure to keep them separate until serving time.
Everyone has that token vegetarian or vegan friend, and once in a while people just want new tofu recipes for themselves. Here is an easy dinner recipe (with barely any cooking involved!!!!!)
