Cauliflower, Endive & White Bean Salad
We are taking advantage of the beautiful weather here in Northern California by using the BBQ while we can still enjoy it. I was getting a little tired of watermelon and corn on the cob sides, so to mix it up a little I made this beautiful and delicious cauliflower salad. The recipes makes quite a bit, so you might want to halve it if you are cooking only for your family.

Chinese Chicken Salad
In our “before kid’s” era, my husband and I lived in sunny San Diego and would delight in such luxuries as eating out most days of the week. To be fair, we worked really long days programming away on our computers and were too exhausted (and at the time lacked the skills) to cook. So, one of our cherished restaurants, Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza, had some awesome salads. My personal favorite was the Chinese Chicken salad.
Fast forward a few years, a few more pounds and a few kids later… we no longer live near Sammy’s. And though I wouldn’t trade those accumulated years or the kids for anything, I am more than happy to say tah-tah to those few extra pounds. Hence, salad is making a daily appearance on our table.
