Simple Salads for Spring

spring-salad-violet

When there’s no time to grocery shop, it’s your chance to get creative. A “throw-together” salad can be attractive as well as delicious and nutritious. Here’s a simple recipe that can be varied as to ingredients or amounts, according to whatever you have in the refrigerator.

4 cups organic broccoli florets (or cauliflower, or both)
1 cup of cubed raw milk cheese – cheddar, Swiss, Gruyere – or 1/2 cup raw milk blue cheese, crumbled
1-2 red organic apples, washed and chopped but not peeled
1/2 cup organic red onion, sliced thinly and quartered
2/3 cup raw pecan pieces – or any nuts or seeds you have on hand
Add 1/2 cup chopped celery, if desired

Combine in a large bowl. Drizzle with the following vinaigrette, and toss until coated.

2 tbsp. organic red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. organic lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove organic garlic, minced
dash of cayenne
1 tsp. organic Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. fennel seeds – optional

Place all vinaigrette ingredients in a small jar and shake well before tossing with salad.

Kitchen Q&A

Q. What about Orgreenic fry pans? Are they a healthful choice for cooking?

A. They test very well here, and are hands-down far superior to “regular” non-stick pans (which are a potential source of plastic and/or aluminum particles).

We have found that they are wonderful for re-heating food, sauteing veggies, or cooking omelets or potatoes – always no higher than low-medium heat. I have heard one complaint about cooking raw meat – that it stuck very badly and the pan was miserable to clean. If any of you have input on this, please share it. 🙂
