The easiest cucumber avocado salad in all the land. Can we even call this a recipe? 3 ingredients + 5 minutes= glorious summer side dish perfection.
cucumber-avocado-salad-recipe

Is there anything that isn’t improved by adding avocados to it? I think not. I used to turn my nose up at avocados (not a shocking thing for me back in the day) but I distinctly remember ordering sandwiches with one of my best friends in high school and she ordered smashed avocado on her sandwich. She grew up in DC and was known even back then with having great taste in foods so…I tried a teeny bit of her sandwich. And it was of course….delicious. View full post »

    Asian Broccoli Slaw with Pineapple | The Adventure Bite - […] the moans of happiness we heard when we served this with our Asian Pulled Pork Lettuce Cups and our Cucumber Avocado Salad at Phin’s party, I think we did pretty darn […]ReplyCancel

Banish boring coleslaw forever! This asian broccoli slaw is the perfect sidekick to your bbq, tacos or pulled pork sandwiches. It’s so good you might never touch regular coleslaw again.

Really? Are we really talking about coleslaw again? This topic seems to be brought up here a lot. (In case you are new here the original “adventure bite” for me was coleslaw). I seriously think that now that I am over my aversion to the stuff that it’s opened a whole new realm of possibilities for our food. Creamy slaw, vinegar slaw, sweet slaw?!? Eat all the slaw.

This asian pulled pork is mixed with a sweet and spicy sauce and topped with our tangy asian broccoli slaw. Naturally gluten-free and dairy-free! Makes a great packable lunch.

We like food. Kind of a lot. And people. Not as much as we like food…but close. So we have made this unspoken precedence in our family that we go out of our way to regularly entertain friends and family. Shockingly the focus is always around the food. We almost never have everything ready on time so we put people to work as soon as they arrive. Instant conversation starters. When our kids were born and birthday parties rolled around, we naturally just planned the parties the only way we knew…around the food! View full post »
