My Favorite Summer Salad

I was reprimanded by my best friend this morning while out on our run about my lack of postings as of late. I know I know. The truth is that it has been a very busy start to the month with some exciting new things in the works. It has reminded me that it is often when we get really busy that our healthy habits are the first thing to go. Sure it is easy to go to that extra yoga class and make some fresh juice when you are working 4 hours a day but not so when work gets bigger. So perhaps you commit to maintaining the most basic of heathy habits: eating whole foods. Below is my favorite salad of the week, loaded with fiber and protein and sweetness.

Favorite Summer Salad for One

2-3 Cups of your favorite greens (I use pre washed organic Olivia’s to save time)

2 Tbsp Chopped Sweet Yellow Onion

1/2 Apple Chopped

1/4 Pepper Chopped

2 Tbsp Cashews Chopped

2 Tbs Pumpkin Seeds

The Easiest go-to Vinaigrette:

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 Tsp Each of Maple Syrup, Mustard and Soy Sauce

1 1/2 Tsp Balsamic
