A vitalizing and colorful salad, packed with summer goodness.
Healthy food doesn’t have to be complicated and it definitely does not deprive us of anything. We can choose healthy, tasty, real food that looks amazing, that is filling and also good for our bodies.
Fruits (as if anyone needs more reasons to eat fresh fruits!) contain many vitamins and minerals that help us prevent disease and promote good health. They are good for our eyes, immune system, skin, heart, bones, teeth, brain and even our overall happiness! They boost our metabolism, help us improve our memory, help us fight infections, give us energy and what not!
Now, we don’t have fruit salads everyday. We generally bite and munch on one or two fruits at a given time, add them to salads or various other dishes. But on a lazy, sunny summer morning, with the neighbor’s bird cheerfully singing within meters of us, what better than a fresh seasonal sweet and spicy delight?
To make 2 servings we used:
1 big apple (royal gala) 1 ripe banana 4 ripe plums handful of dry cranberries
To add some kick, on top of the fruits we sprinkled:
poppy seeds sesame seeds chia seeds
To make the dressing we used:
1 TBSP raw honey (or maple/agave syrup) 2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
For a bit of extra kick, we added a dash of chili powder to the dressing.
