The Perfect Summer Salad http://www.pexels.com

Ingredients

2 Cups of Mixed Greens

1 Cup all Organic Feta Cheese

1 cup organic Cherry Tomatoes

Black Pepper

1 Full Pear diced up

1 cup olive oil

Dill Weed

1/2 cup Parsley

1/2 cup Black Olives

A Good Salad always starts with some Great Organic Greens. I prefer Mixed Greens for this salad. I love the Mixture of the Greens and the Multi of Antioxidants that it gives you. Try to stick with Organic as it’s much healthier. The Antioxidants are loaded up in this small summer salad.

Throw your Greens into a bowl and add in all the other ingredients. Try to dice up the pear before hand so that it saves you time. I always try to stick to Organic ingredients. If you want to add more cheese, and prefer a block then dice up the feta cheese before hand also. I like to take a small baggie and place the oil and Dill weed and Parsley in that and shake it. It really gives the salad a really good mixture. This salad feeds two people. If you want to serve more, double the ingredients . The salad is great paired with a good Pinot Grigio.

Smoked salmon and Spinach salad

 

Salads are a hit at my house, and this smoked salmon and spinach salad makes the top of the list. It incorporates spinach , a great alkalizing green with some amazing smoked salmon, and whole grain pasta. This is a perfect recipe as a side salad, or as an entrée. Its all up to you of how you want to serve it. I have to say its delicious, and quick. You can add some kale or dulce to the spinach too. It s your preference.

  • 2 oz. smoked salmon
  • 1 cup fresh organic spinach
  • (optional) 1/2 cup organic kale or dulce
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 tomato ( organic) sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil and vinegar
  • @ tbsp. flaxseed optional

 

Place the greens in a large bowl. If you are adding the Kale or Dulce, make sure to blend the greens well. You do not want one type of green just sitting on the bottom. Place the cooked whole grain pasta on top. Make sure you have rinsed the pasta with cold water, and drained thoroughly.  Place the Walnuts on top , as well as the tomatoes. Slice the smoked salmon in to small pieces , and place on top. Add the flax seed and dressing on top. If you are making this , just for one person, stick  with the serving sizes. If you are making a bigger salad, for your family , or a cookout, make sure to double the ingredients. I would advise if you are making a bigger salad, to double the dressing ingredients, and let everyone add their own dressing to their salads. Many people like more dressing than others do.

This salad is full of antioxidants, as well as very alkalizing. If you would like to use a certain green to spinach, pick the one that you like best and use that.  They all taste amazing.

I know many of you love eating healthy, and you probably think that Pasta is horrible.  It doesn’t have to be if you find the healthy kinds. There are many great pasta’s out there of great quality. One of my all time favorites is made by ezekiel. If you love their bread, you will love their pasta. I personally do not eat pasta very often, but when I do , it is made of great ingredients and great quality. This recipe is wonderful for cookouts, gatherings, or even great made as a side dish with that perfect steak. You want to make sure you find good quality aragula, that is organic. The penne  can be found at any health food store in your area.

ARAGULA PASTA SALAD RECIPE

You want to start preparing your pasta, and with it being made of great ingredients, it will take a bit longer to prepare. Boil your pasta, and set aside. Place the aragula , and cherry tomatoes together, and place the penne pasta over it once it is done. Make sure it is drained accordingly. I like to add cucumbers to mine, organic of course, and can be sliced or diced. You can add any other vegetables to your salad. Add the dressing on top. This is wonderful with a great glass of red wine. This is approximately 220 calories per serving. food-plate-rucola-salad

Rejuvenation salad

H ladies! 

It’s so easy to get off of the track during the holidays with cocktails, cookies, and all the Christmas baking being passed around, and the sugar flowing. It’s also so easy to think your eating healthy when you go to a restaurant and order a salad, only to know that salad is probably filled with tons of calories, and bad fats. It’s so funny to see sometimes the salads you order in restaurants, when they come loaded with croutons, fatty dressings, and so much more. 

I have included a great salad that is loaded with vitamin C, and fiber, and great protein. This is one of my favorite salads, and it’s an easy salad to prepare before hand if you are on the go. I call it the rejuvenation salad, because it actually makes you feel that way. 

2 cups arugula 

1 cup chopped strawberries 

1 sliced avocado

( optional) 1 cup organic chicken breast sliced 

1/3 cup balsamic vingerette 

( optional) 1/3 cup almonds
