Carrot Quinoa Salad with Spicy Chili Lime Vinaigrette

 

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is having a beautiful week!

I have to say, as much as I love the warm sunny days we have been having, I welcome the occasional rainy day. You see, the rainy days are perfect for binge watching shows without feeling guilty about wasting a nice day. Lately, we have been re-watching Game Of Thrones in anticipation of the season 7 premiere July 16th. It is insane how much I missed the first time around!

Which shows do you love to re-watch?

Okay, now let’s move on to this gorgeous salad. I love a bright, hearty spring salad. I wanted something substantial and healthy, but needed to go to the store. I decided to make a clean out the fridge salad. First, I tossed some carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, and smoked paprika. Then, baked them in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Sweet and Spicy Refrigerator Pickles

Happy Friday lovelies! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for a weekend full of fun and relaxation. It’s date night tonight and we plan on making dinner together at home before going out to see The Jungle Book. (Baloo is my favorite!) I hope it lives up to the fabulous reviews I’ve read.

Today’s recipe for sweet and spicy
refrigerator pickles is so simple to make. You heat the pickling liquid until the salt and sugar dissolves, pour it over beautiful thinly sliced veggies, bring to room temperature, and refrigerate. They only get better the longer they have to absorb the sweet, spicy, tangy pickling liquid. I love the balanced combination of radishes, onions, and jalapenos. Add them to tacos, sandwiches, salads, or snack on them right out of the jar. Make them once and they will soon become a staple in your fridge.
