Are you using Yummly? Have you heard of it? It’s a new recipe collection site and it’s a great way to save recipes you find on the web, kind of like an online recipe box. What I especially love is that Yummly is just for recipes and it provides the nutrition information (i.e. calories, etc) for each recipe, as well as other data. You can get really organized by creating categories, or you can just “yum” recipes as you browse online.
I added a little bookmark to my Chrome browser so when I see a recipe I like, I just click it and it automatically adds the recipe to my collection. I love it! You can also “yum” any of my recipes to your own recipe box by using the share buttons at the bottom of the post. To see all of my blog recipes that have been “yummed” on Yummly here on my publisher page. To create your own account, just click here.
Now let’s talk about this delicious red salad. As you know, I love my salad. Salad is probably what I talk about the most here on the blog!
I created this antioxidant-rich, super flavorful Red Salad for my Inspired Vegetarian column over at Healthy Aperture. Healthy Aperture is the first and only dietitian-curated gallery of food blogs. If you’re on the hunt for gorgeous food that is also healthy, check out Healthy Aperture. There are tons of healthy recipes you can add to your Yummly recipe box over there!
