There are certain salads that stand out in memory, not just as healthy dishes, but also as culinary delights. This is now one of my all-time favorite salads, and it is thanks to my mom, that I can now share it with you! It is light, sweet and bursting with flavor in every bite, plus is a great dish for spring and summer. If you are tired of eating the same kinds of salads all the time, this is a cheap, easy and delicious alternative!
3 limes, juiced and zest of 1
1 Tbsp basil chiffonade
½ tsp ground black peppercorns
1 Tbsp mint chiffonade
1 Tbsp chives snipped
- Shred carrots using a hand grater or food processor. Peel and core pineapple then dice into ½ inch chunks.
- Cut mint and basil into chiffonade (long thin strips). Note: I like it stack the leaves, roll together then slice into thin strips. Chop chives
- Juice limes (throw out seeds), keep zest from 1 lime
- Mix all ingredients together well and let sit for 10 minutes. Chill and serve cold. Serves 8
Note: This recipe is originally from the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa.
