Summer salad

17 Aug

It was crazy-hot and humid in Montreal a couple of weeks ago and I was dying for a refreshing meal. When the weather’s like that, it’s heard to eat anything, let alone something that would weigh heavy in the stomach.

So here’s what I came up with! Lots of deliciousness in this guy:

Spinach-Nectarine Salad

1 juicy Ontario nectarine

1/2 of a small box of spinach leaves (or mixed salad greens)

1 small cucumber, sliced

1 carrot, grated

2 tbsp Chia seeds

2-3 tbsp Citrus Dressing* (or to taste)

*Citrus dressing: 1 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tsp olive oil, pinch of brown sugar or 1/2 tsp agave syrup, pinch of salt, splash of white balsamic vinegar. Shake in a small dressing bottle or whisk in a small bowl.

I put this together just from veggies I had on hand, so consider adding avocado, or seeds (sunflower, etc), or all of the above.

I had a photo of the salad, but my camera apparently ate it, sorrz!****Edit: I found it!
