A quick and easy summer salad for you all to try out!
This is what a go-to dinner looks like for me, mixed fruit over a large bed of greens with a fruity dressing 🙂 I do also at times eat a large serving of cooked veggies and rice, but summer has me craving something a bit more fresh!This dressing is so good that I even remade it and drank it as a smoothie, really I did. Just add a bit of nut milk and voila, you have breakfast 😉 I prefer macadamia nut milk as thats what I’m currently hooked on, but any non dairy vegan milk will do. If you need a sweet nut milk recipe, check out my Raw Ice Cream Milk.You can use any greens of choice, but here is what I had in my home for this salad.
