Oh What a Find!

Stopped in at Walmart yesterday and found all of this for a buck a bag!  2 bags of baby kale, 1 bag of baby spinach and 2 bags of mixed greens.  There was so much kale in one bag that I had to wash it in batches…LOL

Simple Raw Garlic Salad Dressing

I was searching the net for raw food recipes and came across this awesome site:

http://www.therawtarian.com/simple-raw-garlic-salad-dressing

I did my own take on the ‘Simple Raw Garlic Salad Dressing’…I added a bit of black pepper and a 1/2 tsp of a garlic/ginger/chili paste mix :

Garlicky salad dressing

It was so simple and easy and quick to make.  I cannot wait to try this on a simple salad.

Salad In A Jar

I have wide-mouth mason jars and I have been using them to prepare my salads/dressings ahead of time and to keep them fresh and ready to go.  This is my ‘no excuses not to have a salad’ way of doing it:

Veggies in a jar…tomato, onions, green onions & mushrooms

veggies in a glass

A view from above…salad fixins to the left, lettuce/kale/spinach in the middle & homemade salad dressing on the right

Before the shake-up…add some salad fixins and dressing to the greens in the jar, screw lid on tight and shake your booty…oh and the jar too 🙂

After the shake-up…Yes, I eat this right from the mason jar…fewer dishes to wash up…awesome
