Orange and Red Onion Salad – It’s simple, healthy and amazing!
Have you ever eaten a salad that was so good you just couldn’t stop eating it?
That’s this salad.
I can’t believe I hadn’t tried this before. It’s amazingly simple. Super healthy. And it’s also one of the best salads I’ve ever eaten.
Two ingredients, plus salt and pepper. How can such a simple combination taste so fantastic?!
This recipe is bright and light. The sweet, citrus of the oranges is perfect with the sharp bite of the red onion.
Try this with pork, chicken, fish or ham. It would be wonderful with fish tacos!
This is more method than recipe. Grab a few oranges and thinly slice red onion into them. Toss with a little kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Gazpacho – Or what to do with zucchini from the neighbors
The fantastic thing about this soup is that it’s really just a bowl full of raw veggies. But it tastes divine. So good, you could just eat and eat it. So good for you that you can do just that with no guilt.
It’s perfect for a hot, summer evening because it’s eaten cold. I have to admit that freaked my kids out. They did eat it, but they weren’t sure they liked cold soup. Jim and I loved it though.
I adapted my recipe from Pioneer Woman, adding red bell pepper, jalepeno and parsley just because they were hanging out in my fridge. I don’t own a food processor, so I used my pitiful blender that has been partially melted in the dishwasher. It worked fine, so I guess I still don’t have an excuse to buy a food processor.

Summertime Tuna Tomato Salad
This is not your typical tuna salad. There’s no mayo.
Instead, the tuna is served over avocado slices and topped with tomatoes, cilantro and a simple vinaigrette dressing. The flavors are out of this world. For complete happiness, serve it with good, crusty bread.
Oh yeah, you don’t need to turn the oven on for this dinner either.
