Live Fruitfully: Strawberry Super Green Salad

Embracing the last of summer with Live Fruitfully's Strawberry Super Green Salad with Ricotta Cheese.
 
Although it may not look like your typical super food salad, spinach, broccoli, & asparagus are high nutrient-packed vegetables full of fiber, potassium, and lutein. In addition strawberries provide more vitamin C ounce for ounce than an orange!
 
This recipe is gluten free, and paleo friendly.
 
 

RECIPE

Bunch of asparagus, sliced
2 cups spinach leaves
1 head of broccoli, florets
1⁄2 cup strawberries, quartered Ricotta Cheese

Water for steamer

Balsamic Dressing:
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

 

ASSEMBLY
Steam asparagus and broccoli for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Set aside to cool.
In a separate bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard and lemon juice. Add the oil in a slow steady stream, whisking constantly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a separate large bowl, combine spinach, asparagus, broccoli and strawberries with 1 to 2 tablespoons of dressing. Mix to coat.

Serving suggestion: serve individually with ricotta cheese. You can use other vegetables to garnish such as tomatoes & peppers or add grains such as quinoa into the salad. Add mixed nuts & seeds to add crunchiness as well as proteins and good fats.

Storage: dressing will keep refrigerated for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
