I have a new obsession in the form of dates. Yep, it is strange but I swear you will to once you start adding them to salads. I love the combination of a tart dressing, sweet dates, crunchy nuts or seeds, and leafy greens. You get all those flavors in one mouthful and I swear you will want to eat salad way more than you ever thought. Here is the current combo:
Place leafy greens in a big bowl.
Cut up a creamy avocado and add that in.
Slice some hearts of palm and thrown them in because you're so fancy.
Add a palm full of nuts or seeds (pepitas, almonds, pine nuts).
Chop up some sweet dates (remove pit if there) and sprinkle in.
Dice or shred some chicken if you have it leftover from the other night.
Drizzle on your favorite vinaigrette.
Toss and enjoy. This is restaurant quality non-cooking here.
