A Unique & Delicious Salad Recipe
I'm excited to share this delicious recipe from Chef Jessica Bella, a talent here in Boulder with unique ideas for creating delicious and super healthy recipes. She's a Certified Natural Foods Chef and Graduated from The Natural Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts. She focuses on creating vibrant, Superfood rich recipes that nourish the body. We are collaborating on some recipes to share with you and I think you'll love this salad.
Fresh and crispy romaine as the base (you can also add dark leafy greens like baby spinach, arugula, and kale), sweet and crunchy apples (feel free to use both tart green and sweeter Honeycrisp), tart *unsweetened cranberries or cherries and omega-3 rich walnuts or gut-cleansing pumpkin seeds make this salad full of flavor, texture and a plethora of vitamins minerals.
It's the dressing that makes this salad shine. It’s creamy, savory and sweet; includes potassium, magnesium and calcium-rich tahini, fresh turmeric for an anti-inflammatory kick, a whole orange for vitamin c, immune boosting garlic and heavy metal detoxing cilantro (or parsley if you are one of those that dislike cilantro).
This salad is wonderful to enjoy any season. It’s bright and refreshing for summer, and the vitamin punch in this dish make this a perfect immune boosting salad for winter.
You can find her these days at the Integral Center whipping up delicious recipes for sale like fully loaded sweet potatoes with spiced chickpeas & Asian firecracker slaw with almond tahini ginger dressing. Visit her website, Sundrops Organics or Facebook page.
