Summer Salad

Summer Salad 1

Everyone needs a go-to refreshing summer salad recipe when it gets hot out. This is mine that’s sure to wow a crowd. It’s sweet and slightly bitter which compliments any dish that comes as the main course.

When I was coming up with recipe I was trying to find a veggie that pops. I really wanted a watermelon radish but they were no where to be found in my city :(. I seriously looked everywhere and tried to special order them, it was a no go. I stumbled upon these gorgeous chioggia beets, luckily! They really make the salad with their tie-dye pretty look.

Normally, I make salads with arugula, romaine or spinach but sunflower sprouts bring something different to the table. Not only is their texture slightly crunchy but it delivers a lemony nutty flavor. This is a perfect compliment to the sweet, sour and bitter flavors from the cherries, orange and beets. The best part is that this recipe is versatile for all diets: vegan, vegetarian, carnivores, gluten free, kosher and the list goes on.
