I love salads and have one every night with my dinner. Sometimes I feel like a rabbit! No matter what is planned for my menu, I always have a salad along with my meal. Today I would like to share a recipe for a Cobb Salad. This particular salad can be had as a full meal on its own, and it is one of my favorite meals because it is both filling and healthy. Additionally, on our hot and humid days here in Sayulita, a fresh, cold salad is always a great option for lunch or dinner. With chicken, bacon, eggs, avocado, blue cheese, fresh organic salad greens, and a delicious homemade vinaigrette, who could ask for anything more? Furthermore, all of these ingredients are easily available here in our Sayulita tiendas.

Cruising the colorful, cobblestone streets of Sayulita? Leave the car behind, and take a Nava Golf Cart instead! Coming from other countries to visit Sayulita, we're often not used to the sight of golf carts buzzing around town on the roads. However, the novelty of this convenient and eco-friendly way of transport is appealing and part of what gives Sayulita its relaxed, fun, and small town charm. Who doesn't want to hop on their own golf cart heading to the beach, and feel the soft Sayulita breeze through your hair? Venture out into Sayulita's picturesque streets with ease, by renting a golf cart through Nava Golf Carts. The golf carts will be dropped off when and where requested, while one of Nava Golf Cart’s enthusiastic and bilingual employees will personally take the time to show you how to use and plug them in, no matter how late you may arrive from you flight.

I love burgers- whether ground-beef, pork, chicken, turkey, or a combination of any of these, they are always delicious and satisfying. The other day I was on the Food Network site and saw a recipe for Guy Fieri’s “Stuffed Burgers”. The filling of crispy bacon and sautéed chorizo and onions sounded so good that I just had to make them last night! The combination of sautéed onions and chorizo sounded perfect for us in Sayulita! They were so delicious, that I had to share the recipe with you today.

Today I am making Roasted Kale and/or Swiss Chard with Feta. If you read my last column, I talked about Jen Segal from the blog and cookbook “Once Upon a Chef.” Jen has wonderful recipes; everything that I have made of hers has been delicious. I have adapted her recipe a little bit by adding kale to mine. Terrenal Organic store in Sayulita will likely carry organic chard and/ or kale by November, but please check with them first. Mega in Bucerias also usually carries both. Furthermore, you can find kale during high season at the Mercado del Pueblo. Thus, you can make this yummy vegetable dish in your Sayulita kitchen pretty much anytime you would like!

In my last column I promised you Butter Burgers. Well, I made them last night and did not feel that they were worthy of a column. So today I am sharing with you a recipe for a French Apple Tart. I love the recipes from Jen Segal. Her blog is called “Once Upon a Chef”, and Jen always has great recipes to share. If you have never followed her, I strongly recommend checking out her blog. I made this recipe of hers for a morning coffee party the other day, and it really was a hit.

I set out with four friends from Sayulita for a Sunset Sail aboard the Velero Viva. As we left Sayulita it was hot, humid and sunny; we were looking forward to getting out on the water. The closer we got to Nuevo Vallarta, there were ominous dark clouds over Banderas Bay, and it looked like rain. Velero Viva is docked at the Puerto Vallarta Yacht Club, which is located in Nuevo Vallarta-- just a quick thirty minute drive from Sayulita. There is ample parking in the underground garage at the adjacent shopping center.
