Sweet n’ Scrumptious Summer Salad w/ Orange-Strawberry Dressing

May 13, 2013

Sweet n' Scrumptious Summer Salad w/ Orange Strawberry DressingSpring is here, and hopefully summer is around the corner real soon. This weekend in honor of the beautiful weather outside, I decided to whip up a delicious summer salad. If you are a raw foodie or not, it’s always great to lighten up your diet a bit when the weather gets warmer. For those not on the raw bandwagon, spring and summer is a lovely time to incorporate more raw foods into your diet, while also soaking in the wonderful energy of the sun. This salad was AMAZING, took no time at all to prepare, and the dressing was so tasty on it’s own, it doubled as dressing and smoothie. Below is the recipe, feel free to have fun with your versions and add in whatever fruit strikes your fancy. -XoXo Raw Girl
