This is one of my favorite spring salads as the season starts turning green. I fondly remember my time working on a farm, where I was their cheese maker. When corn was in season, this would be my go-to salad on my lunch break. It is so simple, and jammed packed with flavor. It’s also a diverse salad that you change up with different fresh vegetables as the seasons change. For example, I have used thinly sliced Tuscan Kale, and changed out the dill for fresh Tarragon. The options are limitless, go out and be creative -- play with your food!!
Recipe provided by: Kyle Pafford Executive Chef Atlantic Shores Retirement CommunityCheese Ravioli with Tomato Sauce, Spinach, Pine Nut & ParmesanThis pasta dish is a family favorite – simple to prepare, but delicious and full of flavor. I always enjoy fortifying an ingredient and making it my own. When creating the tomato sauce, I used Pinot Noir. Have fun experimenting with your own favorite red wine, and enjoy a glass while preparing it! This recipe is very easy to adapt to create a whole new dish. Switch up the flavoring by changing the sauce to a pesto, or the cheese with ricotta. Be creative -- go and play with your food!
