A Salad Full o’ Berries with Homemade Honey Vinaigrette

I have been eating so much green leafy vegetables these past couple of days that I pretty much feel like a giraffe. Hee hee. :P  I consider it a personal triumph, specially after all the holiday bingeing I gladly put myself through.  And because I have full control of what is served at meal times, everyone in my family has been loading up on their leafy greens as well. Hooray! *wink*

Our salads are usually just spring mix veggies with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.  I love throwing in some diced mangoes, too, whenever I have some.  Last Monday, I traded fresh black berries and sliced strawberries for the tomatoes and cucumbers…

I have to say, I loved it!  I loved how the strawberries added a burst of color to the salad.  Most importantly, I loved the sweet and tangy kick from the berries.  Too bad for hubby, who isn’t very fond of blackberries…except maybe for the techie kind. Hee hee.  I made Honey Vinaigrette Dressing to go with the salad.  It’s pretty much the same vinaigrette dressing I posted on THIS ENTRY, except that I substituted the sugar with (Texas) wild raw honey, which is the healthy kind of honey. ;)

Homemade Honey Vinaigrette Dressing


1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup rice vinegar
3 Tbsp sesame seed oil
5 Tbsp wild raw honey
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger root


Mix all the ingredients then transfer to a bottle and shake thoroughly. Toss the salad with the dressing just before serving.

There you have it.  It’s a win win combination: fresh vegetables + fresh fruits + homemade dressing with wild raw honey = a very happy body. I hope to be sporting a new and natural glow soon.  Just maybe, I will no longer have to look for exposed acne solution.

Cheers to fruits and veggies! Load up on ’em!;)
