4-Ingredient Citrus & Melon Spritzer

There are so many reasons to love summertime, but fresh melons are near the top of the list. They’re sweet, quick, easy, and the ultimate refreshing snack.

When melon season strikes, we love finding ways to use them as much as possible. Hence, these Citrus & Melon Spritzers!

We tested both virgin and alcoholic versions and both were delicious, so they’re great for just about any occasion.

Crispy Miso Chickpea Bowls with Garlic Sesame Dressing

When making our new Garlic Ginger Tahini Miso Dressing I started craving a dish to put it on, and my mind automatically went to a grain bowl with chickpeas and an Asian twist.

So, after testing a few variations I came up with this beautiful Crispy Miso Chickpea Bowl with brown rice, fresh veggies, and a saucy garlic sesame marinade. When added, the Tahini Miso Dressing elevates it to the next level, but it is optional.

Quick Ginger Garlic Miso Tahini Dressing

Sometimes when I’m testing a recipe I want it to be one thing and it turns out to be another. Almost like it has a mind of its own.

Such was the case with this dressing, which was originally supposed to be cashew butter hummus. Sounds good (and weird), right? Well, it turned out to be more weird than good, and then after a series of adjustments it somehow morphed into this seriously delicious miso tahini dressing — and I’m not mad about it.
