Gina's Stellar Ceviche
Few things satisfy me like this shrimp ceviche - it's light and fresh and packed with protein and veggies. It's perfect for potlucks, cookouts and game day where lots of party dishes can be out of synch with your health goals. If you're a citrus lover, definitely try adding grapefruit juice to brighten it up even more. You can eat it with a fork or use your favorite tortilla chips as spoons!

Roasted Feta, Tomatoes, Peppers & Chickpeas
TikTok made the pasta version of this dish popular so I couldn't wait to give it a try and put my own spin on it by adding chickpeas, peppers and preserved lemons to the feta and tomatoes. You can eat this straight from the bowl or serve over pasta, a grain or with lavash, like I had it.
