Meatballs with Peach, Tomato & Basil Salad
I was really happy with how these meatballs turned out! They had a sweet nutty taste that paired really well with tonight's salad!
1 lb. lean ground beef, 1 egg, 1/4 C pecans (blended in food processor until fine), 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce, 3 cloves minced garlic, 1/4 C minced shallots, 2 T chopped parsley, 1/4 tsp. sage, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, fresh ground pepper, and fresh ground nutmeg. Combine all ingredients. Spray non-skillet with olive oil spray. Form ground meat mixture into balls and heat on all sides over medium heat until brown.
Peach, Tomato & Basil Salad:
This recipe was sent to me by Sabrina Delk of CFSCC. I tried it tonight & it was wonderful!
1 fresh peach, sliced, 1 sliced tomato, 2 T roughly chopped basil, juice from 1/2 fresh lime.
Place tomatoes & peaches over a bed of arugula and mixed greens. Squeeze lime juice over the top and season with salt and pepper. Thank you Sabrina!
This was about a 3 block paleo dinner! Enjoy!
