Caprese Salad Remix

Hello!

Welcome to another summer recipe. Even though summer’s end is quickly approaching I still am cooking up “summer time” recipes most days so I thought I would share my new obsession. I have been eating this recipe for dinner a couple times a week and I can’t say enough about this extremely delicious but simple salad. It is my take on a vegan caprese salad! Let’s get into the recipe!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3-4 cups of sweet pea shoots
  • 1 cup of sliced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup of sliced tomatoes (any kind will do)
  • 6-8 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of your favorite vegan feta or mozzarella, I used Kite Hills original almond cheese
  • A drizzle of balsamic vineagar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Start off by washing and chopping your cucumber, tomatoes and basil leaves.
  2. Assemble your salad in a large bowl, add in the pea shoots, cucumber, tomatoes and basil leaves.
  3. Add your dressing and mix well.
  4. Lastly, crumble your cheese on top of your salad and serve!

Servings: Makes 2-4 servings

Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Where I live it gets really hot during the summer, so my body usually craves a ton of fruits and green salads. Even though it is only April it is already in the 80s out so I decided to make one of my favorite warm weather foods: watermelon salad! There are so many ways to make watermelon salad but this is my favorite and the most simple! Only three ingredients needed and you will have a refreshing snack, meal or side dish! Whoohoo!

REFRESHING WATERMELON SALAD

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 watermelon
  • 1 lime
  • 3- 4 tablespoons of fresh chopped mint

DIRECTIONS

  1. First off you are going to chop up your watermelon into cubes and place them in a large salad bowl.
  2. Next squeeze the juice of one lime over all the watermelon.
  3. Finely chop your fresh mint and sprinkle over your watermelon, then give it a good mix!
  4. Once the “salad” is totally mixed you are ready to enjoy your delicious watermelon!!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Servings: This depends, I would say as a vegan Mitch and I ate this in two meals, half a watermelon each. But as a side salad I would say 6-8 servings.
