Fountain of Youth Sweet Salad

24 Apr

We had our Healthy Eats Book Club meeting last night, so fun! So I’ll be posting pictures and reviews for some amazing healthy recipes that were shared.
The lady who shared this surprisingly tasty combination of fruit, whole grains and beans is such an amazing woman. A elegant grandmother she has aged like a beautiful fine wine, if I can learn her secrets to gorgeous aging I will really have something to look forward to every birthday. Well here it is a fountain of youth salad:

Dressing:
1/4 C. Olive Oil
1/4 C. Coconut Oil
2/3 C. Rice Vinegar or Light Balsamic
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp. Fresh Nutmeg
1/2 maple syrup, or to taste

Salad:
2 C. Cooked grains, your choice of wheat, kamut, quinoa, etc.
2 C. Cooked Beans, your choice of white, black, red, Anasazi — rinsed and drained
Grapes, sliced
Strawberries, sliced
Blueberries
Bananas
Zucchini, diced
Yep any fruit combination you like and the zucchini will fit in just fine, trust me! It’s a meal in itself and so delicious. Bet you’re feeling younger already. — Submitted by Marcia Marshall
