This recipe is a take on the popular seafood cevice that I love with a fruit and veggie twist. It has just the right amount of zing to take it from ordinary chopped melon to an extraordinary summer salad.
1 English cucumber
Fresh cracked pepper
2 t. Tajin seasoning (or 1 t. chili powder and 1 t. salt)
Cut jicama in half and peel away the thick skin. Cut into thin, medium length pieces, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Place in large bowl.
Cut watermelon in half. Remove rind and cut melon into thin, medium length pieces.
Cut cantaloupe and cucumber into bite sized pieces and add to the bowl. Mix up the fruit in the bowl and add the juice of one lime and about 2 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro. Sprinkle Tajin seasoning over the top and mix again. If you don't have Tajin, use salt and chili powder instead.
Finish with a few shakes of fresh ground pepper.
Enjoy this delicious summer salad along side any of your favorite grilled meats. It's light and refreshing on a hot summer day.
I love me some homemade potato salad. It's one of the first things I heap on my plate whenever we are having some of my husband's famous brisket and chicken wings. But in an effort to cut back on carbs, I decided to try a lower carb version made with cauliflower, the miracle vegetable. Everything else in this recipe is the exact same as what I would add in traditional potato salad except potato and guilt!
1 large head cauliflower
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3 sticks of celery, diced
5 green onions, chopped including part of the green
1 large dill pickle, chopped
1 small jar pimentos
1/2 -2/3 cup paleo mayonnaise (depending on how creamy you like it)
*You can make your own or use Primal Kitchen Mayo
2 T. yellow mustard
1 t. celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
Cut cauliflower up into medium pieces and steam until al-dente but not completely falling apart. Let cool. Add chopped hard boiled eggs, diced celery, chopped green onions, dill pickle, pimentos, mayonnaise, mustard and celery seed. Mix to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
