How is your new year starting out? I just love the beginnings of a fresh new year! I’m being extra mindful of what I eat, and scheduling my workouts so I don’t miss them! Choosing seasonal fruits and vegetables is a good way to improve a healthy eating plan, and I love being rewarded with high quality produce that’s packed with nutrition at a lower cost. You’ll notice a difference, and your taste buds will definitely thank you for it! This time of year, pears and pomegranates are in season and very delicious, so, I’m putting them together in this beautiful Pear and Pomegranate Salad with Gorgonzola Crumbles. The textures and colors are amazing!

Bean Salad with Ham


Cherry Blossom Kitchen | Bean Salad with Ham

I’m revisiting my Bean Salad with Ham recipe post from a couple of years ago and updating it with much needed new photos! Actually, there was just one photo, taken in the prep stage…because when I added the mayo, most of it was eaten before I could take any more! Anyway, it’s the same delicious salad, perfect for hot days like we’re having right now, although we did have a cool front come through which resulted in the temps dropping to the high 90’s. 🙂  This is one of those delightful, tried and true family recipes. It was my Grandmother’s creation; my Mom made it when I was growing up and still does, and I make it every summer as well. This old recipe is alive and well, and still very much loved. My parents always enjoyed the salad with the buttery Townhouse or Club crackers, but, it’s equally tasty scooping it up with blue corn tortilla chips!
