The Glow Up Salad
I thought of this salad combination while in the steam sauna at the gym. Truth.
After a body pump workout and a steam I knew I wanted something light, refreshing, yet fulfilling. This salad is basically a smoothie (minus the garlic)... that you eat with a fork! Mmmm
It's strawberry season here (and the locally grown berries are sweet, tender yet firm, and actually taste like strawberries...go figure!) They are relatively inexpensive and worth it! I buy strawberries and mandarins weekly at my fruiteria blocks from my school during the daily break. So, adding them to a spinach salad has been a goal for the past few weeks but I end up eating them en crudo before that ever happens!
Beets, peeled and julienned
Strawberries, cleaned and quartered
Walnuts, broken into bits
Seeds (chia/sesame/sunflower), optional
My favorite salad dressing: The contrast of the garlic and ginger against the sour lemon is irresisable to me.
Lemon, zest and juice
