Summer Salad

Nutrition Class
Summer Salad Series – #1
July 27, 2014

Summer Tomato-Basil Salad “Beauty Salad” – inspired by Sanctuary’s garden and utilizing a spectrum of vibrant colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet (chakra colors)

Use a variety of kale, swiss chard and wild arugula mix – these are bitter and high in sulphur – the very mineral that gives our skin a healthy, clear and shiny glow.

Making a creamy dressing with some acidity will help to cut the bitter and complement the salad flavors.

Basic Dressing is: 50% of each of the following – lemon juice (or other acidic liquid as listed below), olive oil and salt.

DRESSING (basically a fat, an acid and salt)

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 whole cloves of garlic (garlic, onion and ginger are part of the “holy trinity” of herbs and also high in sulphur).
  • 1 hot chile (use the tip/taste to test degree of heat). Use caution when handling hot peppers as the oils will transfer to the hands.
  • ½ C cucumber chopped with skin on (if organic and high quality). This not only adds water content, but is high in silica which nourishes the hair and nails.
  • ¾ C tomatoes (our recipe used 3 varieties of heirloom). The tomatoes provide some acidity.
  • Two 3-finger pinches of Celtic sea salt – to taste – or other high quality such as Himalayan. Salt retains moisture.
  • One 3-finger pinch of pepper blend (we used white/green/red).
  • ½ C vinegar or apple cider vinegar (white wine vinegar or lemon juice will also work).
  • 1 C of EVO (extra virgin olive oil) – we use a raw, ice-centrifuge oil which maintains the integrity and flavor of the oil.
  • 1-2 sprigs of fresh basil (we used lemon basil)

Place all ingredients in blender except for the oil and the basil. Turn blender on low and slowly add the olive oil. When blended, add in the basil and gently pulse.

Have your salad greens waiting in a LARGE BOWL – at least double the surface area of the salad so that you can properly dress the greens.

Pour ½ the dressing over the salad and with clean hands, use them to mix and gently toss all the ingredients. You may season it with a pinch of salt/pepper and top with Nutritional yeast and/or *Special Blend. Nutritional yeast contains B vitamins and adds a parmesan-like flavor.

Presentation: use a large platter and drop heavier vegetable items along the side and bottom so as not to weigh down the delicate greens.

*Special Blend: Raw sesame seed, waikame flakes and spirulina crunchies – in equal parts – sprinkled over the salad and/or mixed in. A delicious and effective way to add a punch of mineral nutrition to your salad!

FUN FACT: black olives have the same amino acid profile as meat!

Connecting to your food and being involved with the earth – either by purchasing locally/organically or harvesting from your own garden – adds to the overall experience when preparing your own food. Not only is the food high-vibrational with more Prana (life force), all of your senses are invited to fully explore the medicine of food by touching, smelling and seeing what you have created.
