Chunky Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

If only you could bring images to life with just one look.. putting this salad on my to-do list next week.

That said it might be too acidic.. I’ve been told to alkalize my body. I’m now an almond fiend.

Presenting! An incredible vegan lunch for one. It’s a chunky, filling salad with a flavor punch, Ka-Pow! It’s ridiculously gooood!!

Salad-

1 avocado, chopped in chunks

1/2 C. tomatoes, diced (or grape tomatoes quartered)

1/2 C. greens (kale, arugula or spinach), chopped

1/2 C. cooked garbanzo beans

S&P to taste

Dressing-

1/2 clove fresh garlic, optional

2 T. raw apple cider vinegar (or any wine vinegar)

1/2 T. dijon mustard

1/2 T. agave nectar

1 T. olive oil

1/2 C. fresh basil

Make it-

In a mini food processor, run the garlic through. Except for the basil, pulse the remaining dressing ingredients until emulsified (kinda creamy looking). Now, add the basil and pulse a few times leaving the basil a little chunky. Like this…

In a medium bowl, lightly toss the the veggies in your delicious dressing, salt and pepper and enjoy!

I have a giveaway going on now! Check it out here.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.

~ Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis, c. 405 B.C.
