Time to shop for some ingredients…

Presenting! An incredible vegan lunch for one. It’s a chunky, filling salad with a flavor punch, Ka-Pow! It’s ridiculously gooood!!

Salad-

1 avocado, chopped in chunks

1/2 C. tomatoes, diced (or grape tomatoes quartered)

1/2 C. greens (kale, arugula or spinach), chopped

1/2 C. cooked garbanzo beans

S&P to taste

Dressing-

1/2 clove fresh garlic, optional

2 T. raw apple cider vinegar (or any wine vinegar)

1/2 T. dijon mustard

1/2 T. agave nectar

1 T. olive oil

1/2 C. fresh basil

Make it-

In a mini food processor, run the garlic through. Except for the basil, pulse the remaining dressing ingredients until emulsified (kinda creamy looking). Now, add the basil and pulse a few times leaving the basil a little chunky. Like this…

In a medium bowl, lightly toss the the veggies in your delicious dressing, salt and pepper and enjoy!

I have a giveaway going on now! Check it out here.

We happened to have about two pounds of really unripe plums in the fridge thanks to a recent Costco run (and the fact that plums aren’t quite in season yet in California) and we couldn’t let our massive load of fruit go to waste so making dessert to celebrate the new baby was the perfect excuse…not that I needed one. Thank goodness for newborns because this…
