Though not as popular as various squashes and hardy greens that take center stage come autumn, fennel stands toe to toe with most other plant foods in nutritional value.

 

Avocado Dill Dressing Recipe

Avocados are abundant in healthy fatty acids (mostly monounsaturated), fiber, potassium, and folate. Avocados are one of nature's best sources of lutein, a natural antioxidant that is needed for healthy eyes and skin.

Updated on July 21, 2011: Please note: Cucumber kim chi is best refrigerated and enjoyed right after making it. You can allow it to ferment before refrigerating as you would with cabbage kim chi, but because cucumbers tend to go soft a lot quicker than cabbage, it's best to think of this dish as a crisp, refreshing salad/side dish. Enjoy...

How to Make Healthy Salad Dressing

This is a quick look at how I whisk up the famous honey mustard salad dressing that I mentioned in a previous post on putting together impromptu healthy salads.

First, it's best to start with a see-through jar that comes with a lid. This will allow you to roughly eyeball ingredient proportions as you bring them together, and store unused finished product in the refrigerator.
