Beet Roquefort salad
If you can’t find yellow beets, just make this with 1 extra red beet. This salad is so light and tastes just like something you would order in a restaurant and love but pay way too much for!

  1. Place beets in a medium sized pot covered in water. Boil for 40 minutes or until beets are soft. Run under cold water and peel. The skin should come right off. Slice.
  2. Add to bowl with lettuce, apples and cheese.
  3. In a separate jar mix the rest of the ingredients. Pour right before serve.
Notes & Tips:

If you are not a blue cheese fan, add brie cheese or goat cheese instead.

Salmon with rhubarb jam
Rhubarb is a species of plant that has pinkish stalks that are crisp like celery with a strong, tart taste and is often prepared as though it were a fruit. I decided to turn it into jam and thus became the inspiration to this salmon dish! If you cannot find rhubarb feel free to substitute fresh (or canned) pineapple instead

  1. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish.
  2. Prepare a large nonstick sauté pan on high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and get hot. Add rhubarb, onions and chili pepper and cook for 5 minutes, mixing often. Add the ginger, Worcestershire sauce and honey and mix well and move it all to one corner of the pan.
  3. Add the rest of the olive oil and get hot. Add the fish, face side down and place all the rhubarb jam on top of the pieces.
  4. Add ¾ cup of water and cover. Let cook for 7 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and add fresh basil right before serve.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:
