Pearl Barley Blueberry Pilaf with Mint & Feta

Dilly Roasted Potato Side
This is potato salad on the side ... the enfuso way.

Roasted Cruciferous Slaw
A relatively low carbohydrate option for those related diets. To make it lower in sugar ... just request olive oil only dressing! This salad is loaded with cruciferous veggies for tons of soluable fiber (the antidote for cholesterol) and anti-oxidents for an overall health boost. All of the ingredients are gluten free. We roast our veggies for extra flavor and to give your chompers a bit of a rest.

Feast of Mediterranean Flavors
Imagine sun-filled skies over deep blue crystal clear waters; rocky cliffs surrounding a golden beach and a harbor with seaside restaurants serving hearty bread, rich goat cheese, tart black olives and ouzo... yes you are in Greece! We think of this wonderful cuisine along with those from nearby cultures when we created this feast for the palate.

Caprese with Avocado
We take that wonderful favorite caprese salad and make it easier (by making it a chopped version) and better by adding creamy delicous ripe avocado and pine nuts.
Dressing: enfuso traditional balsamic vinegar and basil olive oil
Calories per serving: 190
Multi-bean with avocado
Our multi-bean salad had to have roasted corn for summer. We use black, northern white, garbanzo, fava, and beans. A slightly tart dressing, spicy purple onion, fresh cilantro, ripe avocado and cotija cheese sends it slighly south of the border. Fresh, light and satisfying for a hot summer day.
Dressing: Jalapeño and garlic olive oil with mango balsamic and champagne vinegar.
Calories per serving: 140
Wheat berries with fruit and greens
We start with slow cooked whole grain wheat berries that are nutty and protein-packed. For summer we use tree ripened organic pluots (plum/apricot) and plump blueberries (photo). In Fall/Winter we switch to crisp sweet organic apples, pomegranate seeds and figs if available. We finish it with cave aged white cheddar and chopped pecans.
Dressing: Summer uses peach balsamic to emphasize the stone fruit flavor. Winter uses Pomegranate or Fig Balsamic. Both are mellowed with a buttery arbequina extra virgin olive oil.

Dressing: enfuso orange guava balsamic vinegar and chili cilantro olive oil
Calories per serving:130-150 (in process)
Garlic Smashed Cauliflato
I love garlic smashed potatoes, but when you add cauliflower, is it a cauliflato? Why not sneak in veggies (cauliflower, roasted carrots, and baby peas) in your yummy potatoes? This is designed for heat and serve.
Dressing: smashed with enfuso garlic olive oil.
Purple & Green Slaw
My two favorite colors together are purple and green. It's the color of my home and of a mountain meadow filled with lupine and other wildflowers. The combination of colors satisfies the artist and the connoisseur. Served recently at two social events with rave reviews.
Dressing: enfuso white balsamic vinegar, champagne vinegar, and olive oil mayonnaise.
