Easy Caprese Salad Recipe

I recently wrote about starting a pizza garden with my kids. Watering our garden has been a fun little way to break up the day with my four year old. Picking the spoils of our labor has also been very rewarding. The kids were very excited to make our first margarita style pizza (basil, tomato, mozzarella). The very gamely tried it, but neither of them like basil or tomato… The two things they actually grew! Nonetheless they loved it. So success is in the eye of the beholder.Continue reading

Healthy Prawn Salad Recipe with Herb Vinaigrette

I love making quick, healthy meals that are delicious and flavorful, and my favorite are healthy salad recipes. Salads are my go-to lunch. Not only are salads quick to prepare and make, but you can also eat it without guilt because it’s healthy and filling. Recently, I started making my own dressings like my Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Cilantro Lime Dressing Recipe, so I was inspired to make another one. I love the taste that fresh herbs give to my recipes, so I decided to make Healthy Prawn Salad Recipe with Herb Vinaigrette.

ALDI Meals: 3 Cheese Spring Mix Salad with Fruits + $25 ALDI Flash Giveaway

Lunches are easy to prepare with Aldi‘s

3 cheese spring mix salad with fruits

With $25 ALDI Gift Certificate Flash Giveaway Today! See below


Because I work at home meals are essentially to me. I’m at a loss a lot of days what to make myself  for lunch. Aldi’s has so many great products that it makes pulling together a quick lunch a cinch.

Today I grabbed my spring mix salad out of the fridge. To this I added 3 different cheeses. I added havarti, brie, and a honey goat cheese.  This gave my salad a nice little zing. After much thought I went back to my fridge and added  bits of a granny smith apple, red grapes, grape tomatoes sliced and some sliced cucumber. Then you can choose to add meat if you want. I left the salad just the way it was. With all the cheese I’m not sure I needed anymore protein. It was a yummy salad that is good for me and my waistline.

Check out my beautiful mix salad below.

Then print out the recipe and make one for yourself.


3 cheese spring mix salad


  • spring mix salad from Aldi's
  • havarti cheese
  • brie cheese
  • honey goat cheese
  • granny smith apple
  • red grapes
  • grape tomatoes halved
  • cucumber sliced
  • dressing of choice


  1. Add your spring mix salad to a bowl. Cut up your 3 cheeses into bite sized chunks. Dice some granny smith apple ad place into salad. Half your grape tomatoes and cucumbers and add to the salad. Sprinkle red grapes on top. End with your choice of dressing. This was yummy enough that I didn't add any dressing.

When you work from home lunches can tend to get boring if you don’t spice things up. Try getting new products you’ve never used and add them to your next lunch. I had never had brie cheese or honey goat cheese and they were great additions to this salad.  This yummy lunch only cost me $2.21 per serving.  I could have eaten at least 4 more salads this week with it too! What’s your favorite salad topping?
