Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas //

Better than chips (okay most of the time)! Toss chickpeas in olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, lime zest, and a squeeze of lime juice. Roast at 400f for 15-20 minutes until nice and golden. Top with a sprinkle of salt, extra zest, and another squeeze of lime!

Indian Summer Tomato & Mozzarella Salad //

The inevitable heat wave that hits with the arrival of Fall. Others around the county are cozying up to October with sweaters and misty mornings / the Central Coast welcomes Autumn with shorts, ice cream cones, and in my case, a summer salad. Here is our dinner during that HOT first week of October. My trick to this dish? Salt-marinating the tomatoes, which draws out water without adding saltiness, and leaves all of that gorgeous tomato flavor.

Indian Summer Tomato & Mozzarella Salad
Marinating your tomatoes in salt is the key to success with this salad. Draw out excess water while maintaining great tomato flavor.
