Who knew watermelon makes a great salad topper? Perfect for Spring or Summer, this vibrant dish is a hostess’ dream. Simply add your ingredients to the platter then drizzle with your favorite vinaigrette dressing. Serve alongside your favorite entrée, or keep it as a meal in itself. Watermelons are refreshing by themselves, so imagine adding them to your salads, and you will get a whole lot of yum!

INGREDIENTS
½ watermelon or personal size watermelon
2 cups spinach
1 cucumber
Blueberries
Fresh mint
Goat cheese
Dressing of choice

INSTRUCTIONS

On a platter or in a bowl add fresh spinach. With a spiralizer, make noodles using a cucumber and add to the top. Slice watermelon in to cubes and add to salad along with blueberries and crumbled goat cheese. Top with mint for garnish and your favorite dressing. Enjoy!

You can even customise it with other bright fruits such as strawberries for that rich red-pink, or even rockmelons for their cheerful yellow.

Beet Pasta

Making pasta pink is easier than you think! Just cook your normal pasta al dente (works with spaghetti, penne, or even shells!) then toss in a beet paste for a few minutes. Beet contains juices that have a natural vibrant and bright red-pink colour, making it a common ingredient for colouring foods. Merging the beet paste with the pasta will allow the pasta to absorb the pink color, as well as give it a hint of exotic flavoring. Serve with parmesan and your favorite sauce!

INGREDIENTS
½ lb farfalle pasta
2 roasted beets
½ cup almond slices
Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves
Olive oil
Salt
Pasta sauce of choice
INSTRUCTIONS

Cook pasta until al dente, and set it aside. In a food processor, add beets, almonds, chopped garlic, a dash of olive oil and salt and pulse until it resembles a pesto. Toss the pasta in the sauce until thoroughly covered. Serve as is or rise off to just get pink pasta then serve with grated parmesan and your favorite pasta sauce.

With great nutrition value and a ton of health benefits, your already-great hummus will get an even greater boost. This zesty hummus has all the makings of the perfect dip for your vegetables because it has the familiar flavor of classic hummus but with an earthier flair due to the beets. Try it with crackers, cucumbers or even carrots. Nothing can go wrong with hummus!
