crunchy green wild rice salad & TORONTO

Toronto is home to diverse people, dogs, foodie spots and sky-scrapers. Spending a week as tourists was the best way to fall in love with a city I once dreaded. The smog and the mad rush we experienced on our first visit was replaced this time with a beautiful multiculturalism, a well-thought-out tour of the best food stops and casual strolls down Queen West, Dupont and Kensington where the organic groceries, classy boutique stores and top notch bakeries are located.

This weeks recipe was featured on the blog of Homegrown Kitchen. Nicola, based in beautiful sunny Nelson, has a passion for healthy family meals and is the author of Feeding Little Tummies. She asked me to share on her website while she has been busy with overseas travels. This worked well for me while I too have been jetsetting. Check it out here.

  1. Reading about your trips around Canada is really hitting home the fact that I’ve seen probably less than 1% of this country – I’ve probably been to more places in the States! Strange how the idea of “seeing the world” doesn’t seem to apply to your home country!

    This salad looks wonderful!

  2. Oh my goodness! You did in fact check out two of my favourite places!

    Lovely! Glad this city was successful in changing your opinions of it. Second impressions are so underrated ๐Ÿ˜‰
