Spanish Cheese Board Turned Salad

September 11, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

Manchego is one of my all-time favorite cheeses. Its slightly nutty flavor complements a lot of food and pairs well with cava, rose, white or red wine really well, making it a perfect cheese selection for a cheese board. I decided to turn that cheese board upside down and make it into a salad. The result? Delicioso. Check it out here and get the recipe here.

Grilling Fish

July 31, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Think beyond steak and chicken the next time you fire up the barbecue and try grilling fish. Grilling fish can seem intimidating but is actually very easy to do if you follow a few simple rules...Try starting with a firmer (steak-like) fish such as tuna or swordfish and then work your way up to a flakier variety such as mahi mahi or red snapper. Always brush both sides with oil and make sure your grill is very hot!

Whatever fish you choose to cook... serve it simply with either a quick relish or a squeeze of lemon juice and some fresh herbs on top.
