    Now that is SPRING on a plate! I love the fresh flavors of the relish – chopped fresh zucchini, radishes and cherry tomatoes mixed in with a simple homemade pickle sauce.

    Quick relishes add great flavor to lean proteins like fish and chicken. Homemade versions also contain much less sodium than those from a jar. I would definitely keep this simple pickling method in my back pocket for all sorts of vegetables.

    This dish seriously tastes exceptionally delicious. It has a nice sweet, tangy flavor. Even my husband who doesn’t like zucchini or radishes loved it. When I asked him how he likes the dish, he said, he is not sure and he needs to have seconds to be able to tell. 😉

    This recipe was adapted from the Clean Slate cookbook from the editors of Martha Stewart Living. When I received the cookbook, I was very impressed by the quality of the recipes and images. The front and back cover are very sturdy as well.

    The recipes are healthy, a lot of them are vegan, dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free. All of them are plant-based and nutrient-dense. The recipe images are colorful and look delicious. If you are looking for a cookbook with amazing recipe ideas to reset your health, detox your body and feel your best, this is the right cookbook for you. I like that the cookbook includes a 21-day menu plan with breakfast, lunch & dinner recipes to detox your body. 

    The cookbook includes different meal courses recipes – breakfast, drinks, soups & stews, salads, main dishes, snacks and even desserts which are very tempting like the Dark Chocolate Truffles and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. There is something for anyone. I can’t wait to try so many of these delicious and healthy recipes. 

    This will definitely be kept in the kitchen and used regularly! I would definitely consider giving it as a gift for anyone who loves to cook and eat clean! grilled chicken w- cucumber+radish+cherry tomato relish-3
