Baked salmon w/ mango yoghurt salad

Baked #salmon in special #spicerub w/ #MangoYoghurt #salad @ Lake Villa, Illinois

I’ve really been enjoying the dijon sauce I typically make for salmon but didn’t want to wear it out so did a throwback to my favourite spiced salmon rub and the result was fantastic.

The salad was good, as always, with the mango yoghurt dresssing, blueberries, granola, and strawberry.

Ribs in spicy arrabiata sauce w/ mango yoghurt salad

I wanted to try something a bit different with my 2nd time making ribs so, instead of the custom apricot bbq sauce I’ve made before, I followed a suggestion in Snoop Dogg’s cookbook and used a spicy arrabiata sauce for to coat the ribs after baking but pre-broil.

While I had my reservations, it was actually amazing. The spicy arrabiata sauce contrasted very nicely with the sweet from the brown sugar/garlic/pepper rub on the ribs.

The mango yoghurt salad dressing always makes the salad a nice treat. Topped with french vanilla granola, strawberries, and blueberries, it really feels like eating a dessert.
