Wheatless Wednesday: Green Olive, Walnut, and Pomegranate Salad This unusual salad comes to us from food blogger Alexandra Stafford, who doesn’t follow an exact recipe when she makes it (her notes accompany the recipe below).

So for our new Meatless Monday recipe series, we’re looking to non-animal sources of protein, and this recipe for chickpeas and veggies fit the bill perfectly. This recipe comes courtesy ofThe Diva Dish — enjoy!
Weekend Recipe: Brown Soda Bread A simple, no-rise bread with Irish roots is just the thing for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast.

And we recommend that you do.
