Peach and Spinach Summer Salad Wrap Recipe Recipe

Temperatures are set to hit high numbers these days so to keep the house cool I've tried not to spend too much time behind the stove or use the oven too much. My go-to meal in this situation is fast, casual eating that requires minimal preparation and almost no cooking. My solution this weekend is to make summer salad wraps

I used ripe peaches, baby spinach, goat cheese, cranberries and balsamic vinegar. The wraps are tied together with lavash flatbread. The contrast of colors is strikingly beautiful. And can you guess when this healthy and tasty recipe was born? Last year, while working with the creative California Lavash team. You can find this exact same photo on one of their new, colorful packages.

Muhammara and Cucumber Bites (Healthy Appetizer Recipe) Recipe

I created these irresistible appetizers for the California Lavash team a while back. It was their idea to combine muhammara (walnuts, charred red bell pepper, fresh pomegranate seeds and mint flavored spread), cucumber, dill, mint and cilantro in their fabulous, healthful lavash flatbread. 

Being the ultimate hostess, in my opinion, requires the art of not only making delicious food but also creating enticing and delectable bites to make sure you please all your guests. I formed twirling portions, which is ideal if you're serving a small number of people. If you're hosting a large party, I would suggest rolling regular pinwheels to save time.

I think this type of food is especially appealing to female guests. The colors are striking, almost bewitching. The appetizers have a lot of flavor, yet are super healthy. If you're looking for store-bought muhammara, I highly recommend Haig's. But if you don't want to be too adventurous, you can replace the pomegranate spread with others such as crumbled feta and chopped olives mixed with Greek yogurt and lemon juice and substitute a touch of oregano for the mint.

Lavash Bread 'Sushi' Pinwheel Recipe Recipe

If you’re intimidated by the thought of making sushi, this recipe is a great place to start. These sushi-syle pinwheelsl are much easier than the real thing, but still delicious. No nori sheets or rice are involved. Instead, I used soft flatbread, roasted red bell pepper hummus, crunchy shredded carrots, wasabi-flavored avocado, edamame beans and spinach leaves. They can be served as appetizers for a dinner party; to ensure they don't fall apart, secure them by tying cute bows around the "sushi" using garlic chives. Remember, you eat with your eyes first!

If you happened to stop by the Gilroy Garlic festival this weekend, you may have come across the California Lavash booth. I absolutely love their artisan flatbread and used it in this dish. Their new look has officially launched and it should be hitting Whole Foods shelves in a few weeks; I’m personally excited about that because you'll be able to see my photos on the new packages!

Mediterranean Pinwheel Sandwich Recipe Recipe

These colorful pinwheel sandwiches are loaded with Mediterranean flavors. Fresh and roasted vegetables are brought together with hummus and pleasingly tart capers. The cabbage and carrots were also briefly pickled in lemon juice and a little sugar to add a little brightness without sacrificing their crunch.

I made these pinwheel sandwiches a while back with the gals from California Lavash. I had a blast cooking with them and look forward to doing it again soon. Their pizza lavash is out of this world. These sandwiches are perfect for the summer and would look fabulous at any picnic, party or barbecue. Enjoy the sunshine!

Cheese Sandwiches with White Kidney Beans Recipe

I always tell the girls that the most important ingredient for cooking is TLC. Making cheese sandwiches is no exception. There must be several layers that bind together properly for the sandwich to be a success. For this version (made for a picnic during our recent trip to Ashland), I had fresh strawberries left-over. So I blended the fruits into a purée and mixed it with cream cheese, sun dried-tomatoes and chives. I spread the strawberry cream cheese into cheese Kaiser rolls and topped it with cannellini salad, which provides the protein for the vegetarians in my family.

If you too are planning picnics with your family before school starts again, give this easy recipe a try. And if you're looking for back to school ideas for your children, this recipe might be it!
