Watermelon Spritzers

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Watermelon Spritzers with Honey and Lemon. Guest post by Maria Lichty of Two Peas and Their Pod, recipe submitted by TK member Bev Weidner of Bev Cooks.

 
I love a lot of things about summer: vacations, swimming, picnics in the park, going to the farmers market, etc. But my absolute favorite thing has to be watermelon. I love watermelon. I eat it almost every day during the summer and I never get sick of it. There is nothing better than cutting into a big, juicy, red watermelon. It is the perfect cool-down treat. 

I enjoy eating watermelon plain but when I saw Bev Weidner’s recipe for Watermelon Spritzers with Honey and Lemon, I knew I had to save some of our watermelon to make these pretty drinks.

To make the watermelon spritzers, you will need: watermelon, lemons, honey, seltzer water, and fresh mint or lemon balm. We used mint because we have a forest of mint growing in our backyard!

First, juice the lemons.

Sip away! 

If you are looking for an easy and refreshing summer drink, you have to try these. They are perfect for summer barbecues, pool parties, or everyday sipping. They are family-friendly, but if you want to get a little crazy, you can add a little alcohol to the mix. Adults only though! 

I love serving thesen. They are simple to make and I love the bright color. Plus, our guests always ask for the recipe. They want in on the drink of the summer! Well, good thing the recipe is not a secret! Thanks Bev for sharing your fabulous drink recipe! Watermelon Spritzers are going to be flowing at our house all summer long. Make sure you visit Bev’s blog, Bev Cooks, for other fresh, simple, and tasty recipes. Cheers!

Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

 
I’m a sucker for anything with pulled pork. When I first stumbled onto this recipe for Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce from TK member 4littlefergusons, my heart literally skipped a beat. Pulled pork tacos with an avocado cream sauce? Heck yes! As the self-proclaimed queen of all things avocado I knew that I had to try this recipe immediately.

I whipped up these tacos and avocado sauce for a girls night in a few weeks ago and every single person gobbled them up. There were even leftovers that my fiancé devoured the next day. Basically, here’s the bottom line: you need these tacos in your life asap!

Here’s the drill.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Start with a little bit of your favorite salsa.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

You’ll also need some roasted green chiles.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Throw some cooked black beans into a little bowl.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

A touch of brown sugar is needed, too! This is what’s going to give the tacos a hint of sweetness.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

And lastly, grab some salt.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Throw all the above ingredients into your slow cooker. Give them a good mix to evenly distribute all the flavors.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Cube up a piece of pork butt/shoulder. You can cut off some of the excess fat and then trim the pieces into 1 ½ inch pieces. Add the pork to the slow cooker and turn it on. You can forget about the pork for a few hours while it does its thing. And trust me, it’s going to be delicious.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Now let’s prepare the life-changing avocado cream sauce. Start by slicing up some scallions.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

You’re going to need 2 avocados too.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Combine the avocados and scallions in a little mixing bowl.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Add a dollop or two (or three) of sour cream.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Toss in some lime juice and salt.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Add the cilantro.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Mash everything together until you have a creamy consistency and then set the sauce aside. If you are going to be eating in a few hours, cover the sauce with a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate it.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Sweet Pulled Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce. Guest post by Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking, recipe submmitted by TK member Tonya of 4 Little Fergusons.

Once the pork is done, take a few spoonfuls and place them into a warmed corn tortilla. Throw in a few cherry tomatoes for good measure and then top it with as much avocado cream sauce as you want. Serve it up and prepare to be wowed!

You guys, this dish is kind of-life changing. Like, you should absolutely make it in the next 24 hours. Trust me!

Description

If you like cilantro, this is the dinner for you! Fresh, easy and oh-so delicious!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SWEET PULLED PORK:
  • 2 cups Your Favorite Salsa
  • 4 ounces, weight Canned Green Chilies
  • ¼ cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • 15 ounces, weight Black Beans, Rinsed And Drained
  • 3 pounds Pork Shoulder Roast (or Loin Roast Is Fine, Just Pricer)
  • Kosher Salt
  • FOR THE AVOCADO CREAM SAUCE:
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • 2 whole Avocados
  • 4 Tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Snipped Cilantro
  • 4 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • FOR THE TOPPINGS:
  • Stand And Stuff Taco Shells
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • Cherry Tomatoes, To Serve

Preparation Instructions

For the pulled pork, in the bottom of a large crock pot, mix salsa, green chilies, brown sugar and black beans. Add the pork roast (salted with Kosher salt) and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Take the meat out of the crockpot and shred with 2 forks. Return to the pot and mix with the sauce and beans. Leave the lid off as you continue making supper to cook away some of the juices.

To make the avocado cream sauce, slice green onions and mash the avocados. Add lime, sour cream, snipped cilantro, garlic and salt.

To serve, scoop sweet pork into a baked hard shell. Top with a dollop of avocado cream sauce and shredded lettuce and green onions. Serve with cherry tomatoes on the side.

Dig into these fresh, easy, delicious tacos! Yum!

Note: My only complaint was that if I made 2 tacos at the same time, the second taco shell got soggy while it waited. Just an FYI, not a deal breaker!

Wedge Salad

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

 
If I were to choose only one meal I could have forever it would probably be a salad with all the toppings that I want. This Wedge Salad by Tasty Kitchen member Lindsay was just that: lovely greens topped with crunchy, salty, sweet, creamy goodness.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

To make it you will need: blue cheese, bacon, shallots, Greek yogurt, buttermilk, iceberg lettuce (or romaine will also work nicely), red and white wine vinegar (or in my case, sherry vinegar), mayonnaise, cherry tomatoes (I used a big juicy ripe one), and flour. Also, chives would be nice for a garnish if you have them handy.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

You’ll start by rendering the bacon in a pan over medium heat, letting all of the fat bubble until the bacon becomes crisp on both sides. Then you’ll remove the bacon to a paper towel and save the fat in the pan.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Next thinly slice your shallots and separate the rings.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Give your lettuce a rinse and pat it dry. Lindsay used a nice wedge of iceberg, but since I happen to love romaine, I just took off the inner leaves and layered them on top of each other. It had a nice crispness the way iceberg would. Go wild with your lettuce I say!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Dice your tomato. A medley of grape or cherry tomatoes would be nice here, simply cut in half. Or if you have a big tomato, give it a nice bite-sized dice.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Toss your shallot rings into a bit of flour.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Get your bacon fat hot again and drop in the shallots to let them fry.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Keep turning them so they cook evenly and are nice and brown.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Add them to the paper towel with the bacon and as they cool, they will crisp up more.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Start dressing the salad! Add the tomatoes, blue cheese, and crumble the bacon in your hands and sprinkle it over the lettuce.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Then add your crispy shallots all over.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Next you’ll make your dressing, which is a lovely dressing to have on hand should you decide to make a larger batch in advance. Start by combining mayonnaise and Greek yogurt.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Then a bit of buttermilk.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Then a sprinkle of blue cheese.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Then your vinegar. Lindsay used red and white wine vinegar but I happen to love this sherry vinegar I had on hand so I threw in a dash of that. Lindsay also added a bit of sugar, which you could do as well if it suits your taste buds. You can play here.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

Mix it all up with a spoon and drizzle it onto your salad.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

It is creamy and delicious and crunchy and otherworldly.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wedge Salad. Guest post by Georgia Pellegrini, recipe submitted by TK member Lindsay of Perfecting the Pairing.

It’s a perfect meal when you’re dining solo on a summer afternoon. Or any day of the week or time of the year. I would eat this all the time.

Fresh Ginger Dressing

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

 
I love homemade salad dressing, but for some odd reason, never make it! Then, after having dinner at a friend’s house a few weeks ago where I tasted the most delicious homemade dressing that she just whipped up a few minutes before the meal, I got inspired. I was ready.

Good salad dressing really does “make” the salad, plus it’s super easy! I mean, it only takes five minutes, if that! In the time it would take you to find good bottled dressing in the grocery store and make it through the check-out lane, you could have your own homemade dressing already on the table.

So, after eating at my friend’s house, I came home and searched Tasty Kitchen for simple, homemade salad dressings. This Fresh Ginger Dressing by afarmgirlsdabbles immediately caught my eye! It’s absolutely addictive and turns regular ol’ salads into something magical. Try it and taste for yourself!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

I told you it’s super easy! All you need to make this dressing is vegetable oil, rice vinegar, salt, pepper, honey and fresh ginger, of course.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

If you don’t like using fresh ginger because it’s a pain to peel, allow me to share with you this little secret a chef I used to work with taught me, and that is using a spoon to peel the ginger! Just lightly scrape the thin skin off with the edge of a spoon and it comes right off. It makes all those crevices much easier to peel. Once you do the spoon trick, you’ll never go back. Trust me on this.

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

To make the dressing, just put all the ingredients together in a pint-sized jar and shake, shake, shake!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

Keep. On. Shaking!

 
 
 
Tasty Kitchen Blog: Fresh Ginger Dressing. Guest post by Jenna Weber of Eat, Live, Run; recipe submitted by TK member Brenda of A Farm Girl's Dabbles.

Now you have your own sweet and spicy ginger dressing. It tastes just like the kind from my favorite Thai restaurant in Florida.


The recipe says that this dressing will stay fresh in your fridge for a week in a Mason jar. I’ll definitely be making this all summer long! Thanks for the lovely recipe, Brenda (who shared it from her grandma’s recipe box!). Have you visited her blog A Farm Girl’s Dabbles yet? You must. You simply must.
