Since we got back from Grand Cayman I have been living on chickpeas.

It is so simple to pop open a can, drain them & mix them into hot or cold dishes.

I’m seeing Kale everywhere!! It’s like once you see it one place, you see it every where. I think I need to listen and start eating more kale!

This is a delicious salad – I make it often. I usually leave out the tomatoes as I don’t like winter tomatoes, but I add some red pepper for colour. I use only 3 tablespoons of plain olive oil. It’s good even without the cheese. Warning to those who don’t cook often – don’t try to follow the instructions (or Marla, could you please fix the instructions). You should massage the oil and lemon juice into the kale first, THEN combine with all other ingredients. Otherwise you will have a big mess on your hands (literally).
