Very Good 4.7/5
(11 ratings)

Note:
I tried this recipe when visiting in Maine at a little country flea market and I personally am not a fan of Rhubarb. When I have a chance to get Rhubarb I grab it now.
Also my spouse doesn't know there is Rhubarb in it and he loves it. The Rhubarb and blueberries compliment each other.
Enjoy

This is my take on Costco's incredibly yummy Cilantro Lime Shrimp. I like mine with lots of garlic and spicy. You can tone yours down by using less garlic and crushed red pepper. Enjoy!

Gazpacho (Chilled Vegetable Soup)
Very Good 4.0/5
(66 ratings)

Gazpacho is one of my favorite summer meals, and it's no coincidence that it's also one of the easiest to make. It's simply a chilled, usually blended vegetable soup of Spanish origin.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(65 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Goat Cheese Alfredo Pasta
Good 3.2/5
(26 ratings)

Even a lunch portion of fettuccine Alfredo has 800 calories and 48 grams of fat. Mine has less than 1/2 the calories, 1/5 the fat, and plenty of veggies, too.

Spinach and Tomato Pasta Salad
Very Good 4.1/5
(146 ratings)

Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.
