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!

Ingredients:

4 carrots

1 pineapple

3 limes, juiced and zest of 1

1 Tbsp basil chiffonade

½ tsp ground black peppercorns

1 Tbsp mint chiffonade

1 Tbsp chives snipped

Instructions:

  1. Shred carrots using a hand grater or food processor. Peel and core pineapple then dice into ½ inch chunks.
  2. 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
  3. Juice limes (throw out seeds), keep zest from 1 lime
  4. 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.
