I decided to stop by a couple of weeks ago before heading over to the new house for a meeting with our contractor and pick up some red and green curry paste.
Don’t worry though, if you don’t have an Asian market near you, you can still find red and green curry paste in the Asian section of your local grocery store, or you can order the same Green Currry Paste that I found at my local Asian market on Amazon.

Mango Salsa Ingredients
1 mango (diced)
3 roma tomatoes (diced)
1/4 cup red onion (minced)
1 jalapeño (de-seeded and minced)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (minced)
1 lime (juiced)
Mango Salsa Instructions
Add the diced mango and diced tomato to a small bowl.
Add the minced red onion, minced jalapeño and minced cilantro.
Squeeze the lime juice over the salsa and mix everything together.
Easy as that, you’ve got a healthy, scrumptious mango salsa ready to go! This salsa has only 57 calories per cup, making it the perfect choice for a flavorful side that you can feel good about digging in to!
Begin by trimming the ends off the green beans, chopping them into 1 inch pieces and adding them to a large mixing bowl.
Add the tomatoes, bell peppers and garlic cloves to the bowl then drizzle with the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and top with the black pepper.
Toss together then place onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.
Top with the fresh basil and place into the oven for 25-30 minutes.
While the vegetables are roasting, toast the walnuts in a small skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
Remove the vegetables from the oven.
Add the roasted vegetables to a large mixing bowl.
My recommendation: grab the sides of the parchment paper or foil (like this ↓) and simply slide it into the bowl so you make sure to get all the roasted vegetables and the delicious balsamic juices into the bowl.
Next, add the pesto to the roasted vegetables.
Toss well. Place into a serving bowl and top with the toasted walnuts.
My intern Erin and I ate this for lunch last week, but it would also be a great side dish for dinners, BBQs or holidays!
