Our Favorite Summer Salad Recipe

Our Favorite Summer Salad Recipe

Summer signals not just sunnier weather but LOTS of delicious fresh produce.

Take advantage of all our earth's bounty and try our favorite summer salad recipe.

The peaches are not only loaded with Vitamin's A, C, E & K, but their sweetness perfectly compliments the tanginess of the crumbled blue or goat cheese (whichever is your preference). The blueberries and kale are a huge source of antioxidants, and the avocado, pistachios and EVOO provide not only good fats that important for proper hormone production and cell growth, but a creaminess to the salad that balances out the sharpness of the red onions- not to mention all the raw veggies...

Also it just tastes delicious! 

But don't take our word for it... Give it a try and let us know what you think! Share on Facebook, Instagram @organic.excellence or Twitter @chemfreechoice.

Our Favorite Summer Salad

INGREDIENTS:

THE FIXINGS:

    • 1.5-2 Ripe Peaches, cut into thin-ish slices
    • 4-6 cups baby kale/spinach blend
    • 1 Large ripe avocado, cubed
    • 1/2 cup blueberries
    • 1/3 cup finely sliced red onion
    • 4 sprigs of fresh mint, leaves removed & torn
    • 1/2 cup crumbled goat or blue cheese (optional but recommended)
    • Pistachios for garnish (optional)

THE DRESSING:

    • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • Aged Balsamic Vinegar (of syrup consistency...)
    • Kosher Salt 
    • Freshly ground pepper

THE METHOD:

Wash and prep all ingredients setting aside. Place the kale/spinach mix in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat thoroughly, and sprinkle with kosher salt as you go. Don't wash your hands yet! Throw in half the red onions to mix in... they will sink to the bottom but it's better to have them evenly distributed. 

From here you can individually plate your salads or if you're brining this to a BBQ or serving family/buffet style from a big bowl continue as followed... (same goes for individually plating just divide ingredients evenly among the plates)

Now throw in the rest of the ingredients in this order: peaches, blueberries, red onions, avocado, mint, goat/blue cheese and pistachios. DO NOT TOSS! 

Sprinkle everything with a little more kosher salt, a little freshly-ground pepper, drizzle with a little extra EVOO & the Aged Balsamic Vinegar (make sure it is the syrupy-kind otherwise too much vinegar will lead to bad things... trust me!) and voila! The salad is ready to be served!

The reason I don't toss everything is that gravity will eventually do it's work once people begin to grab their salad from the bowl. If you toss it all those yummy beautiful toppings will sink to the bottom and you'll be left with a bowl of perfectly dressed kale and your guests will have to dig for the toppings like hidden treasure. So help them out and let them know why this salad is going to be the best thing they've eaten all summer!

Serves 4-6

Quarantine Life, Weight Loss and Hormone Imbalance

May 16, 2020

Quarantine life is challenging, to say the least, and all of us are struggling mentally, emotionally and physically. And no one would blame you for being tempted to abandon your diet and exercise plan...People of all ages, and especially those over 40, must realize that weight gain is often a sign of an imbalance in the body. So, treating the symptom (weight gain) while failing to identify and address the actual cause can quickly lead to frustration, failure and yo-yo dieting. Weight gain is often a symptom of hormone imbalance and one or more endocrine disorders. Let's take a closer look at two key contributors, stress and the resulting adrenal fatigue, and compromised thyroid function which can lead to hypothyroidism.
