Tangy Salad Dressing/Marinade and yes… More Meatballs!!

The following recipe is a tangy tasty salad dressing but could also be great as a marinade for chicken or fish.  Also you will find another meatball recipe.  This one is so quick and easy and I even made a fast sauce that the kids really liked over their meatballs.

Sun Dried Tomato Salad Dressing

1/2 a jar of sun dried tomatoes

generous amount of olive oil (about 1/2 cup or more if making marinade)

1 big spoonful of capers

juice from 1/2 of a lemon

3-4 garlic cloves

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  I put this over an organic spring lettuce mix salad with some broccoli slaw and 1/2 diced apple.

Meatballs in Minutes

2lbs grass fed ground beef

generous amount of the following: garlic powder, ground marjoram, black pepper, and fresh rosemary

sea salt to taste

Mix all ingredients with your hands.  Form golf ball size meatballs and place in a well oiled skillet over medium heat.  Brown on all sides, cover and steam for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.  Serve alone or with the following sauce.


1 can of tomato bisque soup from Trader Joe’s

1/4 cup organic heavy cream

drippings from meatball pan

Whisk all together in a pan and bring to a simmer.  Serve over meatballs if desired.

Also pictured is mashed yams – pressure cook yams for 7 minutes and mash with organic butter, 1/4 cup apple sauce, a dash of nutmeg and ginger, and tons of cinnamon.
