I concocted a quick and nutritious recipe this evening for my supper. I Just thought I would start sharing the recipes I come up with. I try to use all organic vegetables but will substitute with non-organic when there is not other option.
No picture for this one–sorry! It was so delicious, by the time I decided to post the recipe I had finished the salad.
