Mushroom Medley Is A HitMushroom Medley This side dish pairs well with chicken or beef or game meats. You can use almost any variety of mushrooms in any combination. I leave the small mushrooms whole because they look nicer that way, but you can chop them if you prefer. Mushrooms contain selenium, an antioxidant
Chimichurri Baked SalmonChimichurri Baked Salmon This salmon dish is a great way to use fresh herbs, which provide a multitude of nutrients. Chimichurri is a traditional Argentinian sauce of fresh herbs, much like an Italian pesto, but with-out the cheese or nuts. Feel free to play around with the herbs you have
