January 17, 2013

So, let me guess.  One of your resolutions this New Year is to eat healthier?  Am I right?  I think we can all do a little better, especially after the holidays!
This is one of my new favorite salads, the combination of manchego cheese (a favorite) with macron almonds, and roasted red peppers really is taste bud heaven!  And, it’s perfect as a light lunch or dinner!
