Eating fresh food

Celebrating spring always makes reminds me of the many spring breaks we had with our kids! Whether in the high desert in central Oregon, or the desert down in the Palm Springs area, we always had a good time with the kids.

The gesture of celebrating spring by giving a gift of nature is a wonderful tradition, as we often did outdoor activities with the family.

Now years later, we had such a great time in the desert this past month. One of the places we splurged and enjoyed with our daughter is FARM restaurant. It’s in downtown Palm Springs, and let’s just say it’s a real treat. Probably the best meal we had while down here. We also started editing the new cookbook on this day!

How to make a prawns salad

Cook the prawns ahead of time and chill. The sweet lime dressing has a “kick” that adds the perfect flavors to the salad.

  1. Simmer the prawns in white wine; drain and cool.
  2. Make the dressing.
  3. Prepare the avocado with fresh lime (to prevent from browning).
  4. On a bed of lettuce (on a board or a large plate), arrange the prawns, avocado, and mango.
  5. Drizzle with the delightful dressing and serve!
