Sensational Summer Salad

Creamy and Crunchy~ two of my favorite textures~ and this salad representing both!! I really like this recipe because most of the vegetables in it have the opportunity to share their unique and exquisite taste. The 'dressing' is lemon, olive oil, and sea salt which brings out the natural flavors of the veggies. 

Equipement needed: knife and cutting board :)

Yields: about 2.5 cups

Ingredients:

1 large carrot

1/2 cucumber

1 orange, red, or yellow bell pepper

1/4-1/2 apple

1 avocado

1/2 yellow onion

small handful of cilantro (optional)

1 tomato

1/2 or a whole lemon, depends on how ya like lemon ;)

1 Tablespoon of olive oil

1/4 tsp of sea salt

1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/8 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

Cut all vegetables in small pieces and mix together. Stir together vigorously so the avocado begins to creamify itself, but not completely. 

Add pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries to garnish. Serve chilled and enjoy!
