I came up with this salad recipe last week, on a night where I really was in the mood for a hot bowl of Thai Coconut Curry Soup but sadly didn’t have all the necessary ingredients. Plus, also felt like I needed to whip up a huge salad, because I had a bunch of veggies that were in dire need of getting used up. 

So, I decided to sort of fuse both dishes together, — hence the name Thai Fusion Veggie Noodle Salad — so I would get the best of both worlds. 

I totally played it by ear and didn’t measure or write anything down: I just used a little bit of this and a little bit of that and let my creativity (and the content of my fridge) guide me. But the resulting dish was so crazy yummy that I ran to my office the second I finished eating to write down every single ingredient that I’d used to make it. I just had to share this recipe with you, and well, log it so I would get to make it again, and again, and again. continue reading

Tomatoes are in season and can be had for a handful of change… or maybe they’ve even totally invaded your kitchen if you happen to be growing your own! 

If that’s your case, then you’re probably looking for ways to use them up! Personally, I can’t think of a better way than by making Pico de Gallo… 

Indeed, not only is Pico de Gallo extremely easy to make, it’s also super delicious, crazy healthy and can be used in countless different ways. 

This tasty Mexican salsa makes for an excellent dipping sauce and is of course at its best served with tortilla chips, but it also goes fantastic with practically everything and anything Mexican, i.e. tacos, burritos, enchiladas, tostadas, beans and rice casseroles, and even eggs! 

Hey, it even makes for a great little side dish with a kick, me says…
