There is nothing better than homemade salad dressings. It is freshly made without all the extra fat and additives that can be harmful to your body.
And as a Puerto Rican myself Mojito is a delight for us Hispanics. I make Mojito every 3 weeks. It is a typical Puerto Rican salad dressing made from only 5 ingredients you may have right now in your pantry.
Here's the Recipe:
1 bottle of Olive oil
2 large whole cloves of garlic
12 sprigs of cilantro (stem & leaves)
1 tsp. of black pepper & salt
This is optional if you like...some people add fresh chile or habanero peppers to the mix.
Put all ingredients in the blender and let it whip well, then pour it back into the olive oil bottle, if you have extra mixture just pour it into a clean plastic or glass jar. Do not refrigerate.
You can use it over salads, or in any dish, you prepare for that extra flavor that will make you smile after every bite.

Hello everyone, Millie here.
I hope you are all enjoying yourselves on your neck of the woods. Here it is great, I have been busy in the kitchen preparing lots of meal for the Winter which I will post later on. I sure hope you have all tried some of these Latin veganized meals, they are all super delicious.
Today it was an easy dinner for me... I made baked yams and roasted vegetables marinated with a great Latin flavor to spice up your taste buds.
In the oven, I baked some sweet yams and the night before I sliced some broccoli, Bella mushrooms, onions, and zucchini. that I had marinated in my Spanish mojito dressing which I will post the recipe next week. I put the veggies in my toaster oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes and served it with the yams. It was FABULOUS!
Stay tuned for my mojito recipe next week...chao.
From my Caribbean Kitchen to your...SALUD!

Happy New Year to all.
I have to start off showing all the food I got this Wednesday when I went and raided Marc's & Fligner's grocery store reduced bins. Every day these two grocery stores clean out their produce departments. Since they need to get them out fast and they put their produce for $1 or less. So when I went there this Wednesday the bins were overflowing bringing home a bunch of great vegetables and fruits for $32.00.
