The Yummiest Salad You’ll Ever Eat

by Tiffany in Book Reviews

This is the yummiest salad you’ll ever eat or a close second or third. I swear it is sooooo very good. Since I got the recipe from a cookbook I am not going to reprint it but it essentially contains avocados, marinated artichoke hearts (Trader Joe’s), Palm Hearts (Trader Joe’s), Roma tomatoes, prosciutto, black olives, cilantro, lemon juice, and a vinaigrette using white balsamic vinegar. It is heavenly!!!

The recipe hails from one of my fave cookbooks: Cooking With Trader Joe’s Cookbook: Pack a Lunch! I like all the Trader Joe’s cookbooks in this series because I am also a fan of the store.

I like flipping through the pages and seeing a recipe that incorporates those all too familiar products that I pass by when in the store. I see the steamed/peeled baby beets in the store all the time. Well this cookbook has a recipe for a Beet and Goat Cheese Smoothie using those beets. My hubby likes to get the Almond Butter and Roasted Flaxseed and this book has a scrumptious recipe for Zucchini and Chocolate Milkshake using the nut butter. It takes me outside the box and makes me try new things. Plus the food is yummy. I highly recommend picking up this book and the entire series if you are a Trader Joe’s shopper.

    Oooh! Lovely! I shop occasionally at TJ’s but must get myself there soon! Do you find a lot of their recipes are Paleo friendly?

    • Not really but lots of their salads, smoothies, and sides are. I would recommend trying the library to see how you like them.

    It’s totally legal to share recipes that are published, as long as you put the directions in your own words and don’t share too many from the same cookbook. And somehow I don’t think Trader Joe’s would mind since it would encourage people to buy more of their products.
