    summer saladLast weekend, it was my pleasure to prepare and share two meals with a beautiful group of yogis at Yoga Centered here in Hilo!  On Sunday I made one of my favorite summer salads, which is a perfect dish for these final days of summer:

    Summer Salad:

    • Mixed greens: preferably 2/3 spinach, with 1/3 red and green romaine or butter lettuce and arugula
    • 1 cup of chopped cucumber
    • 1 cup of sliced strawberries
    • 1 cup of blueberries
    • 1 cup of toasted almonds
    • 1 cup of feta cheese
    • 1 large avocado, cubed

     

    Raspberry Vinaigrette:

    • 1 cup of raspberries, chopped into tiny pieces
    • 1/4 cup high-quality olive oil
    • 2/3 cup of high-quality balsamic vinegar
    • juice from 1/2 of a fresh orange (other citrus is great, too!)
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Pour olive oil, vinegar and orange juice into a jar, then add raspberries and lightly shake until mixed.
