Pickled Sesame Cucumber

This quick pickle recipe makes a great little side to any meal or top a hot dog with it! Wow that just popped into my mind and actually sounds so good. I especially love it this time of year because it’s so easy to tote to the neighbors BBQ. No soggy salads here!

Cantaloupe Salad

This salad is so quick and easy to whip up and so versatile. Bring to a summer bbq, bridal brunch, baby shower, on a picnic etc. I kept the ingredients simple but be sure to use fresh mint and a ripe cantaloupe to get the most flavor.

Bonus is that this salad has anti-inflammatory properties. We could all use a little more of that!

Blackened Salmon With Mango Salsa

The mango salsa is a nice balance to the spicy blackened seasoning. If you don’t like spice- feel free to make a mild version with less cayenne or skip the serrano peppers in the salsa. And if you REALLY don’t like spice skip the blackening seasoning all together and simplify it by simply sprinkling generously with salt and pepper. Either way, I hope you enjoy!

Deviled Eggs

A truly balanced Deviled Egg. These aren’t overly mayo-y and pack a lot of flavor into one bite. A little acid from lemon makes them more balanced and adds a little extra moisture. Finished with a little crunch from pickled mustard seeds, the combo is so tasty!

Watermelon Mint Slushy

Just because the recipe is for a mocktail doesn’t mean it has to be alcohol free. Feel free to add your liquor of choice. I personally think a gin would taste great for those who aren’t sensitive to those grains.

Pickled Mustard Seeds

Pickled Mustard Seeds can be used in so many ways- as a garnish for a salad or deviled eggs or sushi, on a burger or sandwich, or as an elevated version of regular mustard. They’re perfect for pulling out at your next barbecue.

They are more mild than mustard and don’t have that pungent mustardy smell. They add a great texture to a dish as a garnish as they just pop in your mouth. These Pickled Mustard Seeds will last  for about 3-4 months in an airtight jar stored in the fridge.
