... a quick and simple salad full of nutritional value that is easily added to many a meal!
Serves 4 to 6
6 cups arugula leaves
2 cups mixed greens
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
1 small red bell pepper, sliced into rounds
1 avocado cubed
3 to 4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 to 2 teaspoons lime zest
1 glove garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon sea salt and ground cumin
Rinse the greens and spin dry.
In a skillet, toast the pumpkin seeds over medium-low heat until you hear a 'pop'. Allow to cool. Place the pumpkin seeds, roasted red pepper strips, avocado cubes, and green onion in the salad bowl with the greens.
Place all ingredients for the dressing into a small bowl and whisk. Toss the salad with the dressing just before serving.
Organic, unprocessed, raw Almond Milk wins hands down over any Almond Milk you may find on the dairy shelves. I make almond milk quite often without the vanilla bean and sometimes even without the dates ... all are very good!
1 cup almonds, raw
2 pitted dates
1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder or half a vanilla bean
