Meet our new favorite salad!

Posted: September 4, 2016 By: Comment: 0

This week we whipped up a salad that we just couldn’t wait to share. The presentation on this baby is beautiful. It’s perfect for a dinner party, weekend barbeque, snack, or family meal.  

This recipe combines strawberries, cherry tomatoes, avocado, basil, sesame seeds, and cinnamon toasted almonds in a simple 2-ingredient dressing. Sounds pretty easy right?

Using basil as your leafy greens instead of lettuce, kale, spinach, or a spring mix makes this caprese salad a cut above the rest. Not only does basil keep things interesting, it acts as an anti-inflammatory, has disease-fighting antioxidants, helps with depression, supports liver function, and helps combat stress.  There’s a ton more to love about basil and it’s super-power house essential oil (more on that later!), but we’ll keep it short so you can get to cooking!

 

Here’s the recipe:
