Massaged Arugula Salad

Posted by: admin in: ● November 14, 2010

OMG, talk about wholesome goodness, your taste-buds will sing when you try this salad! I adapted it from a recipe my friend Kitty described to me yesterday during an intense conversation about how awesome we feel not eating “shit food” as she calls it. Her version had kale, cilantro, lemon and some other stuff but she promised to post her creation on Yum Yoga! the next time she makes it. Here’s my variation:

4 cups arugula leaves, chopped
1 cup basil , chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, scored/sliced
2-3 cloves or about 1 tbsp. fresh chopped garlic
1 whole lime (juiced)
sea salt
cracked pepper

Combine all ingredients in a big bowl – now here’s the fun part. Wash your hands thoroughly and DIG IN – seriously, both hands in, and start MASSAGING the salad to get the avocado really mushy and distribute all the lime juice and other amazing ingredients all over the greens. Literally, finger-lickin’ good! You’re done, put it on a pretty plate and enjoy!
