Berry + Basil Tomato Sauce

I love unexpected flavor combinations, don’t you? Strawberries and tomatoes aren’t the most likely pair, but they actually complement each other rather nicely. The folks at Driscoll’s contacted me last month with a fun summer challenge that I just couldn’t resist. They asked if I could create a savory recipe using their amazing strawberries. I just loved the…

This kale & quinoa salad is inspired by my 2 favorite superfoods, kale and quinoa! Nick’s restaurant here in Long Beach features a similar salad that I literally crave, but paying $17 for a salad as often as I have the craving for it just doesn’t make sense.
