Lemon Mustard Salad Dressing...

Mia Bella Passions Blog
The health journey I have been on has been epic!
Many choices of change have been made.
It's been a long, slow journey.
Goals made.
Goals met.
New goals set.
I began putting my journey into words in 2017 here at Mia Bella Passions.
In 2020 - began updating that story, which is ongoing.
The hope is that it may inspire others who are chronic pain and poor health sufferers.
You will find that story so far HERE.

Mia Bella Passions Blog
It also inspired me to start sharing some of the recipes I love with y'all
- that offer healthier choices.
Delicious and tasty choices.
Today I'm sharing a lemon and mustard dressing for salads.

Whisk until combined.

Pams Salad

Rocket, lettuce or mixed salad greens
diced cucumber
chopped tomato
diced red onion.
diced orange capsicum
(omit or add any other salad ingredients you desire)

Regal Salmon
I served this with flaked cold salmon.
But try it with:
Honey grilled chicken.
Seared lamb or beef.
Crumbed fresh fish fillet.

Toasted Sesame Seeds

Dry toast sesame seeds over high heat in a non-stick frying pan.
Swirl and stir constantly until golden.
( I make a large quantity at a time and store in an airtight jar, to have on hand to add to salads, savoury baking, and pizzas.

A superbly tasty salad that is very quick to prepare.

DIY Tray Makeover...

I love upcyling old things and giving them a new lease of life.
This is what happened to this very aqua blue tray.
From this....

To this!

I actually love the blue,
but it just did not compliment my home decor.

So it was out with the blue,

and in with the grey.

Manorburn Double by Resene was the colour used.

I love candles.
So the tray contained all my candle pots in one place.
I added a potted yellow flowering succulent plant to the vignette.

This is a 'Kalanchoe'.
A great repeat-flowering indoor plant.
Easy care.
Just give it bright natural light (No direct sun) and do not overwater.
Remember it is a succulent!

But something was missing...
a coffee table runner.

So I looked in my fabric stash to see what I had that would be complimentary.
This natural light linen-look fabric was perfect.
With a contrasting herringbone pattern, 
it adds interest to the table vignette.

All I did was measured the table and hemmed all four sides to fit.
I'm loving the fabric table runner,
and the tray vignette.

And easy low-cost upgrade to freshen my sitting room.
