This savory meal starts in the slow cooker. Prepare the pork chops in the slow cooker and then finish them in the skillet. Served with a side of sweet potatoes and a raisin-olive relish, this dish is filled with rich flavors. We also paired the pork chops with a side of couscous but you could swap it out for your favorite grain.
Moroccan spices blend earthy (cumin) with warm and fragrant (coriander and allspice). Salmon and cauliflower embrace these flavors well. Look for thicker salmon fillets from the upper portion of the fish rather than thinner tail pieces.
A veg-forward take on a muffuletta pasta salad, this ultra-flavorful side dish is just as refreshing as it is filling. Hearty cubes of meat and cheese against the brininess of olives create a balanced, sandwich-inspired satisfaction. It can be served immediately, or left in the fridge for a couple hours or up to a couple of days to let the flavors meld further.
Juicy and pleasantly plump, grapes are at their peak now. This versatile fruit also packs a healthy punch: Black and red grapes are rich in anthocyanins--powerful antioxidants that may lower your risk of heart disease and cancer and boost brain power. By adding the kombucha last, we preserve its carbonation, making for a crisp and refreshing cocktail.
