Cranberry Pecan Rice Salad

Any dish is better with rice, especially around the holidays. When I prepare this dish, I love using Ralston Family Farms rice! Being able to follow this grain from their farm to my fork is one of the many reasons I love Ralston rice! Since Ralston Family Farms is located along the Arkansas River, it allows them to work in environmentally friendly ways during the growing season! Whipping up this recipe is so quick and easy! This dish is great for all my holiday guests, and it’s tasty, too!

Sesame Kale Salad

Cauliflower may have taken the lead as the trendiest vegetable, but I still love kale. It’s easy to grow in spring, fall and even winter if you live in a warm climate. It’s a great addition to soups, pasta and frittatas. My friend Alison Chino gave me this recipe for sesame kale salad tossed with an Asian-inspired dressing, sesame seeds and pickled onions. To make it a meal she suggests adding a piece of grilled salmon. Get more of Alison’s recipes on her blog.
