These beautiful heirloom tomatoes were picked for their interesting shape but the flavor was unfortunately not as impressive. The salad however was delicious. I made a basic vinaigrette with shallots, mustard, white balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper. Tossed with Earthbound Farms Fresh Herb Salad, pine nuts and goat cheese it was a great combination for a hot summer night.
Here comes the sun…
And by that I mean Sunshine Burgers – these veggie burgers first of all taste wonderful (not in a “trying to be a real burger” kind of way) and I love the ingredient list – simple and short. I tried the Garden Herb variety which I simply heated and served with a little mustard and catsup. I loved that it was kind of crispy and can’t wait to eat another one! I am also VERY excited because while visiting their website I saw that they have 2 new varieties coming out: Falafel and Breakfast. I LOVE falafel!!!

The new 75,000 square foot store opening today (!) is the 3rd largest Whole Foods in the world. It has seating for 200 in the mezzanine, outdoor tables overlooking the river, 7 neighborhood-themed eateries and the list goes on and on. I’ve heard that there is even a mix-your-own trail-mix bar….oh and you can drink wine while you shop. Hello Lincon Park Whole Foods!!!!
Finding a healthy, decent-tasting meal at the airport is like playing the lottery. Will I have time to grab something before grabbing my connecting flight? What restaurants will they have? Since I live in Minneapolis, I am lucky to have a lot of good airport dining choices and I usually am able to pick up a great salad to go – my favorite? French Meadow Bakery & Cafe (a Minneapolis local) which offers organic, fresh, delicious food. (gasp! I know, it hardly seems possible)
