Everyone is posting about pumpkin spice and here I am with a humble summery Strawberry Salad. Like many recipes living on my hard drive, I didn't have a chance to share when it was actually summer. To my credit, it still feels like summer in LA despite what the calendar says. So if you happen to source a pint of strawberries from some farmer at the farmer's market or if better yet you purchase some in a clear plastic box from --gasp-- the supermarket that sources them from Chile, be sure to keep this green wonderfulness in mind.
The theme of this month's link-up from the Kosher Connection is "The one food you'd want if you were stranded on an island." The answer would be that I truly don't have a clue. I love lots of different things but can't isolate one that would be at the forefront of my mind. But I really would love a big bowl of this salad. It would be truly refreshing on an island.
this is more like a nonrecipe, something simple to throw together for a satisfying, healthy meal.
3-4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
8-9 strawberries, chopped
handful of roasted hazelnuts
handful roasted sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
toss everything together and enjoy nourishing your body.
