Green Bean and Potato Salad Recipe CrunchyCreamySweet.com  682x1024 Green Bean and Potato Salad with Bacon

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. icon smile Green Bean and Potato Salad with Bacon

Mango Peach Quinoa Salad with Honey Lime Dressing @crunchycreamysw Mango Peach Quinoa Salad

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 @crunchycreamysw Healthy Spinach Dip Mac and 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.

Ranch Parmesan Roasted Tomatoes @crunchycreamysw Ranch Parmesan Roasted Tomatoes

Gorgeous, plump tomatoes will always grab my attention and find their way to my shopping cart. Especially now, in the season, I try to enjoy them along with all of the other summer veggies and fruits! I love fresh, juicy tomato slices on an avocado toast or on grilled burgers. But there is only so many sandwiches one can eat. If you need more ideas for the red beauties, I have something just for you today!

Enter roasted tomatoes.

Thick slices of tomatoes are tossed in olive oil, Ranch dressing mix and minced garlic, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and roasted in the oven.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce a 4 ingredient healthy creamy sauce thats great for pasta pizza or dipping @crunchycreamysw Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! After a carb-loaded and sweets-filled last week, I thought it’s time for delicious savory dinner recipes. And I am starting with a healthy one!

One of my Hubby’s favorite pasta dishes is chicken Alfredo. The creamy garlic Parmesan sauce with chicken and linguine is pure comfort food. This summer, I have been working on lighting up our favorite dishes and incorporating healthier options into out menu everyday. Hello, green smoothies!

This sauce is a combination of two veggies I absolutely love: cauliflower and garlic. I grew up eating a lot of cauliflower. My Mom had a collection of recipes using this veggie and made them a lot. The smell of sauteed garlic is my childhood memory, since my grandmother used it in almost every dish. I always have a jar of minced garlic in my fridge and now, roasted garlic cloves too. (P.S. I made a page on roasting garlic! Check it out, HERE!).
