IMG_20150211_195027

I think this was my favourite salad experience OF ALL TIME.

The magic is in the dressing – but here’s what was underneath:

  • spinach
  • tomato
  • green pepper, red pepper
  • green onion
  • celery                            (2 green containers of veggies!)
  • seared chicken tenders     (1 red protein container)
  • avocado                         (1 blue container, healthy fats)
  • pumpkin seeds                (1 orange container)
  • quinoa (cooked)              (1/2 yellow carb container)

(I got to the end of the day and realized I hadn’t eaten half my food, so our came GIANT SALAD OF FABULOSITY)

MAGIC STRAWBERRY ASIAN DRESSING: 

Combine all ingredients in a jar & shake; you might need to heat in the microwave for 20 seconds if the coconut oil re-solidifies (mine did)….

  • 2 strawberries
  • 1 tsp “zested” ginger
  • 1 tsp pressed garlic
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1.5 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 tsp honey

I put my final 1 orange container of dressing – 2 tbsp or so I guess – on the salad and it was MAGICAL.  especially heated up.  The pickled strawberries….  OMG.  Little bit of warmth from the sriracha….  OMG.  Seriously, the most fantastic salad I have ever eaten….

Happy Foodie Friday!
