Avocado Salad with Microgreens

I really wanted to call this “faux chicken salad,” but I feel like anything “faux” these days equates to tofu, and that is not what this is. It’s filled with flavor, and had the richness and texture of chicken salad!

Avocado Salad with Microgreens

  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • Roughly a 1/4 cup diced white onion
  • 2 TBSP Sir Kensington’s original mayo
  • Small handful of microgreens
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper

Mix together, and enjoy a filling, rich, healthy alternative to the traditional soy/chemical filled chicken/tuna/egg salads out there.

Sun Sugar Tomato Salad

One of the tomato plants I planted this year is a “Sun Sugar Cherry” plant (each year, I kind of just pick 5/6 different kinds and see what I end up with-however, this one will be planted every year). Little orange cherry tomatoes, that are, surprisingly sweet and flavorful. In fact, after I picked them last night I tried one, and then I had quite a few more (fun fact: several years ago, Sun Sugar was named by Sunset Magazine as the best tasting tomato in their trials for its sweetness and rich tomato flavor that includes just the right amount of tartness!). Probably the best cherry tomato I’ve ever had. I decided to throw together a salad with ingredients I had at home, and it turned out to be fabulous!

Sun Sugar Tomato Salad

  • Butter lettuce
  • Diced red onion
  • Chopped crimini mushrooms
  • Grilled garlic
  • Sun Sugar tomatoes
  • Chopped beets
  • Microgreens
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Tessemae’s Cracked Pepper dressing

Toss everything in the bowl, and top with¬†a handful of¬†microgreens, salt/pepper and some Tessemae’s (paleo friendly!) Cracked Pepper dressing.

Eat your colors!
