Green Bean and Potato Salad with Bacon – simple yet delicious potato salad with green beans and mustard dressing. Perfect side for your BBQ dinners!
If there is one side dish that I love making for our weekend BBQ dinners, it’s always the potato salad. I have my beloved recipe from my Mom that I make not only during summer but for special occasions too. I also have a few that are so easy that my 8-year old can whip them up. Making salads for dinner has become her favorite part of helping in the kitchen. Be it simple greens and tomatoes Ranch salad, Daddy’s favorite Caesar salad, this Mango Peach Quinoa Salad, and now this Green Bean and Potato Salad.
But then there is bacon. Don’t we all know that bacon makes everything that much better? It does! I think it might have been the selling point of this salad to my Hubby.
Mango Peach Quinoa Salad – healthy fruit salad with quinoa and my favorite honey lime dressing! It’s full of fresh flavors and absolutely delicious!
I often share here on the blog how much my kids love to help in the kitchen. They gather ingredients, mix things in a bowl and set the table. They WANT to do it and I couldn’t be happier. My oldest (she is almost 9!!) has quite the knowledge about healthy food and always grabs a bag of baby carrots in the store, because it’s her favorite snack.
She also loves to make a fruit salad. It’s her favorite dish to make for parties, picnics or simply because we have a ton of fresh fruit on the counter. That’s my favorite perk of summer time! All you have to do is chop up the fruit and you have a fantastic side dish ready in minutes.
Healthy Spinach Dip Mac and Cheese – creamy and delicious mac made healthier with a cauliflower sauce! It tastes like spinach dip with the addition of pasta! Don’t forget the cheese!
They say, once you make one healthy choice when it comes to food – another one will follow. And it’s true! This year I have been on a mission to load up our weekly menu on healthy dinners and lunches.
I still get my daily veggie smoothie (my beets and berries smoothie and my new favorite, refreshing green), I am obsessed with this garlic roasted cauliflower sauce and my kiddos have been munching on greens and fruit salad with honey lime dressing all summer long.
