Favorite Salad #1
Inspired by Cafe Gratitude in San Francisco, this salad is perfect for summertime. Light and sweet. Enjoy! Light and Love
Salad:  Wash and chop an interesting mix of salad greens.  In this recipe I used escarole, curly endive and romaine lettuce but feel free to add in your favorites:  spinach, radicchio, dandelion greens…the more exotic the better! Also, mix in some herbs for a more dynamic taste. I love mint, and rosemary.
Prep your fruit:  Wash and chop into quarters 8 -10 large strawberries, 3 medium-sized heirloom tomatoes and peel and separate the mandarin segments.  Mix the fruits together in a small bowl and leave them to marinate while you prepare the dressing. If you like a little sweet add some chopped dates to this.
Coconut Mango Dressing: In a Vita-mix blend together:  the meat and water of one young thai coconut, the meat of 1 ripe mango, the juice of one lemon and ½ jalapeño (to taste).
Assembly:  Generously dress the salad greens with the Coconut Mango Dressing.  Arrange the marinated fruit on top of the greens and garnish with hemp seed and a few goji berries.
