Menu Plan Monday ~ Aug 1/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Aug 1/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration at I'm an Organizing Junkie

Hi everyone! Welcome back to Menu Plan Monday! Thank you for allowing me to take a break for a little Canadian vacation. We had a great time!

I manged to stick to my Paleo diet while on vacation in Prince Edward Island. It was a little tricky but not impossible. One of my favorite Paleo meals was a spinach salad we had at a restaurant called Sheltered Harbour. It consisted of spinach, egg, mushrooms, onion, bacon, tomatoes and scallops. It was so good!

Bacon Spinach Egg Salad

But what made it especially good was the dressing. Normally I just eat my salads without dressing in restaurants as they typically aren’t safe for me but this salad was served with a homemade Creamy Honey Basil Dressing that was safe for me. Oh my what a treat, yum yum! The server double checked the recipe for me and said the ingredients included egg, oil, honey and basil (any maybe vinegar I can’t remember). So it was basically similar to making homemade mayo just in a thinner consistency. I thought I’d have no problems finding a recipe like it online but haven’t had any luck so far so I will have to tinker around and try to recreate it myself. I’ll keep you posted!

What delicious recipes have you been eating lately?
