Living in Hawai'i, we love our Land and we love to eat and cook with what we find locally. This salad features Maui Sweet Onions, Waimea Strawberries, local Greens, and of course a sprinkle of Macadamia Nuts. The flavors are so bright! I love to shop at KTA Superstores, I think they have the best produce. Their salad greens and micro greens are the freshest I’ve seen anywhere!
Wherever you live, find these ingredients at your local market. Did you know that soil carries probiotics unique to that particular area? These probiotics will help you body develop immunity to whatever challenges your specific environment is facing. So amazing.
The dressing is what really makes this salad! Blended unit totally emulsified, it's SO surprisingly good! I love to add chicken to this salad, especially dipped in the Strawberry Balsamic Dressing.
4 Cups Local mixed greens, I like to use better lettuce and arugula along with a salad mix from my local farmers.
1 cup Micro Greens
1/2 Maui Onion, sliced very very thinly
1 Avocado, thinly sliced
8-10 Strawberries, quartered
1/4 cup Raw Macadamia Nuts, chopped
1/4 cup Local Goats Cheese
Roughly chop everything and toss together in a large Salad bowl.
For the Dressing:
I love this on my Big Island Strawberry Salad. It's equally good on chicken or used as a veggie dip.
1 cup hulled strawberries (about 8 big ones)
1/2 avocado oil or light olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 mejool date (pitted)
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp course ground black pepper
Measure everything into a blender ( I love to use a Vita-mix). Blend on high until this dressing is fully emulsified and smooth. This will keep in the fridge for up to one week!
