Cottage Cheese and Avocado Rose Salad gives you a next-generation cottage cheese salad that kkips the 60s diet plate vibe with a medley of crunchy-fresh asparagus, sugar snap peas and cucumber served over baby greens topped with blueberries and a fresh-sliced avocado “rose." Of course, this salad is just as delicious topped with traditional sliced avocado, but why not put your knife skills to test with this edgy new on-trend presentation.
This Cal Italia-inspired pizza starts with rustic hand-shaped thin crust pizza dough baked bubbly hot topped with olive oil, fresh mozzarella cheese, Italian soppressata and sliced jalapenos. We added a California-fresh topping of sliced avocado seasoned with a shake of chili lime seasoning and crumbled queso fresco Mexican cheese for this bold & spicy appetizer pizza. Find chili lime seasoning, such as Tajin® Classico Seasoning, in the produce department.
Our non-traditional continental breakfast board includes sprouted whole grain toast with ripe mashed avocado served with an assortment of fresh fruit (the tart tangy flavor of blueberries are particularly delicious paired with avocado), toasted walnuts and cheese. We included a creamy melt-in-your-mouth chevre, but this breakfast would also taste great paired with salty feta or sliced gruyere cheese. Fresh brewed coffee (or tea) completes this “four star spa” continental breakfast. The perfect way to start a relaxing week-end in style, even if the rest of the day is hectic!
Pistachio and Mint Spring Custard uses freshly picked mint sprigs that have been strained into a vanilla custard to create a light, minty dessert. We paired it with pistachios, this year's nut of choice, to get a really unique flavor combination you and your guests will love.
Enjoy the crunchy-fresh, slightly sweet licorice flavor of fennel before the local winter through early spring growing season comes to an end. Fennel pairs well with citrus in this delightful spring salad with delicate marinated shrimp and early spring salad greens tossed in a fresh citrus vinaigrette.
