Silvi’s Salad

I planted lots of lettuce this spring, in the hopes that it would inspire me to make more salads. It worked. Here’s what I put in my salad today. It was particularly tasty…

1/2 bunch spinach, chopped

~7 medium-size red chard leaves, leaves chopped into ribbons, stems chopped

1/2 bunch watercress, chopped (stems included)

good handful mung bean sprouts

2 carrots, sliced (I used one that was purple!)

~1 cup red cabbage, finely chopped

3 scallions, sliced

some cherry tomatoes, quartered

3 small cloves of garlic from my garden (probably less if store-bought), minced

drizzle of olive oil

Himalayan sea salt, to taste

Wash, dry, and process all ingredients. Then combine & toss in a large salad bowl. Enjoy!

  1. Oh my god! You must be radiantly healthy eating like this. Sounds delicious! Remember when we ate that huge salad fro breakfast and then biked from Queens to Coney Island?

    1. That is the kind of lifestyle I am going for! If only I could get to Coney Island on a bike with one salad in my tummy from here…
