This dish was very simple to make and really only consisted of layers of goodness; quartered tortilla wraps, black beans, roasted red pepper, cheese, cumin, more cheese, corn and green enchilada sauce. I think we’ll be taking a break with the Mexican dishes as of late we’re getting pretty tired of the tortilla wraps. If you have some Mexican recipes to suggest that don’t require these I would love to hear them!
So this is my first ice pop experiment, I came across this recipe on an amazing food photographer’s blog; White on Rice Couple. When I saw their post on the Marionberry Mojito Ice pops I immediately scoured for the popsicle mold online and was planning on making this asap. They.are.delicious. A perfect summer bbq treat and to cool you off on those hot summer days. I’m going to make so many variations of these this summer so stay tuned!
I’ve been eating a good amount of mozzarella and tomatoes as of late, it could be a problem. Really though, I made this sandwich three times last week. You know me, the easier the better and who ever paired tomatoes, basil and mozzarella is my hero. I used a roasted Garlic Italian bread and buttered both sides first and put in the toaster for a bit to make the bread nice and crispy. I added the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil and toasted it again. Viola!
I can’t take credit for this recipe, my Grandmother used to make it frequently (along with many others I’m sure) and when my Mom mentioned she made it I jumped for joy. I haven’t had this since sweet salad for years and it brings back so many nice memories of my Grandmother and family gatherings during the hot summer months. This simple salad contains mandarin oranges, pineapple, mini marshmallows and shredded coconut. It’s perfect when chilled out of the refrigerator on a hot humid day!
