Grandma’s Greens and Beans

Grandma’s Greens and Beans

We enjoyed this very flavorful recipe as a side dish served with salmon; but it’s certainly nourishing enough to be served as the main dish. Other greens can be substituted for the curly mustard greens or you can use a mixture of greens.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Peachy Salsa

Grilled Fish Tacos with Peachy Salsa

If you choose corn tortillas, you will skip the fat that is usually in the flour tortillas. Check the ingredient list if you choose whole wheat tortillas; often ‘wheat flour’ or ‘enriched wheat flour’ is a second ingredient; so they are not really 100% whole wheat.
