What’s For Dinner? Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad with Homemade Red Wine Vinaigrette

For the past few years I have belonged to the Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA. Each week from May through the end of October I pick up an amazing variety of fresh veggies.

Items such as beets, rainbow chard, swiss chard, turnips and radishes were not something that I bought frequently. Yet now, when these veggies […]

For this meal I used tilapia and it turned out really well! Make sure to make the salsa at least 30 minutes prior to serving, even better if it sits […]

I am sure after this weekend there were a lot of burgers and hot dogs eaten, although this is NOT your traditional burger meal! You can easily find recipes to make your own black bean burgers, although I used the MorningStar Spicy Black Bean burgers when I made this meal. I placed the grilled burger on top of arugula, topped with a homemade peach salsa and had a side of black bean & corn salad. Enjoy 🙂 Jenn Corn and […]
