Nothing fancy or in-depth today, just salad! And a giveaway.
Every time I throw together some fresh veggies with a simple dressing I end up with something gorgeous on my
plate bowl and I call myself a Chef (ha!). Why is salad so perfect? Really. Fresh, vibrant, living colors. Put it all in a pretty red bowl and I can stare at take photos of it for hours…until it begs me to eat it.
This salad has raw zucchini, carrot, a mushroom, celery, green onion and is topped with almonds, sesame seeds and fresh basil. The dressing is slightly sweet, spicy, nutty and zesty. Just the way I like it. Nom nom.
1 TBSP almond meal 1 tsp linseed 1 TBSP coconut meat 1 TBSP honey 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp ginger powder 1/4 tsp garlic powder 2-3 TBSP lemon juice 1 TBSP soy sauce 2-3 TBSP water 1 tsp sesame oil
I just whisked them all together in a bowl until completely mixed.
For 1 serving of salad I used:
1/2 zucchini, thinly sliced with peeler 1/2 carrot, thinly sliced with peeler 1 mushroom, thinly sliced 1 green onion, thinly sliced 1 celery stick, chopped
I mixed the veggies with the dressing, gently. Then topped it all with:
a handful of fresh basil 1/4 cup crushed almonds 1 TBSP sesame seeds
It’s so YUM you’ll be scraping the bottom of the bowl hoping that there’s more where that came from!
