Tomato Salad with Jalapeño Vinaigrette from Make Ahead Paleo

While at PaleoFX last weekend, I finally got to meet Tammy Credicott in person.  We had tried to meet up at PaleoFX 2013 but we kept missing each other.  I'm pleased to report that she is just as nice in person as the persona she projects in her blog and books. I was able to catch one of her cooking demonstrations where she made her  Tomato Salad with Jalapeño Vinaigrette from Make Ahead Paleo.

When she was done, she invited us up for smells but we could not taste.  I posted a picture of her finished salad to the blog's facebook page.  It smelled absolutely lovely and looked quite pretty as well.  I decided I had to try this recipe out so I could have a taste.

Egg Salad from Quick & Easy Paleo Comfort Foods

One thing that you can do to make eating a paleo template is to be prepared.  For me, preparedness can be a double edged sword.  I'll take the time to prepare snack foods to take to work in case I get hungry between meals, but then I'm simply not hungry between meals.  Of course, if I don't prepare, I get hungry or "hangry" as the case may be.  This happened to me recently and I found myself with 4 hard boiled eggs that needed to be eaten.  I happened to have some paleo mayo in the refrigerator and remembered that Quick & Easy Paleo Foods by Julie & Charles Mayfield had an Egg Salad recipe that looked quite tasty.   

Even though I hadn't planned to make this salad, I had all of the ingredients except for the pitted black olives.  This was sad as the introductory paragraph to the recipe says the olives bring something special to the salad.  

Imagine Apple Cider Vinegar in this picture as well.
