This is an unconventional way of making a salad, but it is easier than having to carry around a huge salad bowl, and besides, I really love my little bowl and use it for most everything...
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 ripe tomato
- 1/3 of an onion
- 1/2 cup of Life Sprouts® Pro-Vita Mix sprouts (or any sprouts, but these are the best)
- Earthbound Farms® Spring Mix (Costco sells it cheap!)
- olive oil (Bariani's is the best)
- apple cider vinegar (Eden Organics® is very good)
- Herbamare to taste
- Wholesome Foods® Raw Agave Nectar (optional)
- Ohsawa® Nama Shoyu
Cut up the veggies and put them in the bowl. In a salad dressing container, I use an empty Agave bottle, put in equal parts olive oil, shoyu and vinegar. If you make too much use it tomorrow. I use about 1/4 cup of each for a salad. Add 1/2 tsp or so of Herbamare (better than plain sea salt) and any other herbs or spices you prefer in a dressing.
Add 1 Tbsp agave nectar. Shake it all up and pour it in with the veggies and sprouts.
Next grab a handful of salad mix and throw it in. It will look like this.
Stir it in and aim your fork for the spring mix. When you run low on leafy greens and reds, throw another handful in and stir it up. You will be amazed at how long the dressing and veggies last, just keep stirring to coat the leaves. You may opt to leave out the salad mix and have a nice little raw soup instead!
CAUTION: Too big a handful of lettuce will cause some serious spillage when you try to stir!
