Harmonious Salad

I present to you, dearest friends, my Harmonious Salad. Strengthen your sense of harmony, fulfillment and well-being within! (Yeah, it's that powerful...)


Ingredients:
  • 3 avocados, pitted and chopped
  • 5 tomatoes, washed and cut into fourths
  • 1 head purple cauliflower, washed and chopped (note: purple cauliflower is a specialty item, and I found mine at Whole Foods; you can definitely substitute with white cauliflower.)
  • 15 or so Brussels sprouts, washed and halved
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, (this one is pricey but actually heavenly.)
Serves 6.

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place halved Brussels sprouts in oven dish. Distribute olive oil, and roast for 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes.
  • Add in chopped cauliflower, toss, and roast for additional 15 minutes.
  • Turn heat up to 400. Add in chopped tomatoes, and continue roasting for 5 minutes. (note: every oven varies slightly. Keep an eye on yours.)
  • Turn oven off, and refrigerate the roasted vegetables for 30 minutes.

  • Once cooled, toss with lettuce and avocado in a salad bowl.
  • Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. 
I promise this will become a household favorite. Give it a whirl, and you can decide!

    3. Does regular/white cauli impart the same flavor as the purple variety?

    4. White cauli will work beautifully in this... The taste is more sweet than purple. Enjoy! :)
