Loaded Chopped Salad

A refreshing and healthy salad filled with lettuce, baby spinach, radicchio, arugula, deshelled edamame, sweet corn, grape tomatoes, toasted walnuts, and dried cranberries. Tossed and chopped into fine pieces, this salad is amazingly delicious with so many flavors and texture that no dressing is needed.Salads are one of my favorite meals.

How to Make Chimichurri

The first time I tasted chimichurri was in Westlake Village at a place called Galletto Bar & Grill, which I frequented often. I went a few months ago and ordered my favorite dish-the Brazilian Chicken (pictured below). It's utterly amazing. I think this dish changes my brain every time I eat it because it's just so good. The black beans and rice, combined with the acidity in the chicken and chimichurri make for a perfect blend of flavors that seem to dance in your mouth as you're eating....more
