Healthy Green Eats For Earth Day

Mother Earth Day Salad
Mother Earth gives us a bounty of beautifully nutritious fruits and vegetables to create plates of amazingly good tasting dishes. 

So in honor of "Earth Day" 2015 I created a salad made with raw and natural ingredients straight from Mother Earth's finest ingredients of organic kale, carrots, brown mushrooms, beets and sunflower seeds.

This salad is so darn delicious, simple and quick using only 5 ingredients.  Celebrate life and Mother Earth!

Mother Earth Day Salad
1 bu. Flat Kale, Chopped
4 ea. Organic Brown Mushrooms. Sliced
2 Organic Red Beets, Cooked, Peeled and Sliced
1/4 c. Shredded Carrots

Walnut-Honey-Citrus Vinaigrette
4 Tbs. Orange Juice
1 tsp. Orange Zest
2 Tbs. Honey

In a small mixing bowl add the Dijon mustard, honey, orange juice and orange zest.  Whisk in the walnut oil to emulsify.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.
