Happy Memorial Day 2013

Healthy Patriotic Feast

Red, white, and blue are the colors for this military remembrance day. The day brings with it celebrations, parties, tributes, and sharing. What better way to share with others than by bringing a colorful dish or two to the potluck and feast? Here is a healthy way to participate...

Salvation Salsa
2 large hot house tomatoes, diced
¼ cup leek or red onion, diced
½ avocado, peeled and cubed
1-2 T chopped basil, rosemary, thyme and parsley
olive oil, to taste
2 T red wine vinegar
½ orange

Place all ingredients, except for orange, into mixing bowl. Combine thoroughly. Squeeze the orange over the mixture. Mix completely. Place in fridge to chill. Adjust vinegar and oil to taste.

Either enjoy the salsa as a halibut topping or a side dish.

Patriotic Halibut
1 pound halibut
½ t Italian seasoning
olive oil

Lightly spritz a grill or frying pan with the oil. Place the pan over medium heat. Rinse the halibut so it is moist. Cover the fish with seasoning. Cook halibut until done, about 8 minutes. Flip over at about the half-way mark to evenly cook. Check for doneness throughout cooking time.

Blueberry Smoothie
1 handful blueberries
1 cup plain yogurt
cinnamon, if desired

Place all ingredients into blender. Puree until desired consistency is reached. Serve chilled. Add a fresh sprig of mint to give a delightful and refreshing taste.
