Berry Minty Salad with Mixed Berries, Neem Honey Drizzle, and Pink Himalayan Salt

Hello happy healthy readers,

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend! I know I did, and it was that much harder coming in to work today. But a day off in the beginning of the week means the weekend is that much closer. I meant to send a package of goodies over to my friend, and I did a great job with her letter but I am still figuring out the perfect dessert that flies well. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any suggestions!

The perfect summer berry salad with pink himalayan salt and neem honey drizzle. I am sure that I am not the first one to combine salt and fruit together, but the ingredients were on my shelf and I knew there was no going back.

Salt makes sweet taste sweeter. I guess you could apply that to life as well. I am sure This was also a hit at the BBQ I went to yesterday with some old friends and a good catch up session. I tried veggie hot dogs for the first time and I was very impressed. There was great company and there was good wine.

Try to use organic honey and organic berries.

Ingredients

2 cups mixed berries, I used blackberries, blueberries and strawberries because it is what I had on hand but you can use your favorite mix

1 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1 tablespoon neem honey

1/4 cup mint leaves, or more to taste

Directions

Wash berries and pat dry. Add honey to taste and mix, top with mint leaves and salt. Mix well and serve. This salad gets better the longer you let the salt break down the berries. Good for a day or two.

Can be made vegan if you sub agave for the honey.

The Black Swan

This one is inspired by a cocktail, but hey this is the most antioxidant filled juice I have come up with in a while. There’s a smoothie version to for all of you guys that like smoothies over juices or for those who don’t have a juicer!

JUICE

2 cups fresh blackberries

1 wedge or 2 wedges lemon, depending on how much you love lemon

1 beet, skin removed, washed 

1 apple

Directions

JUICE ME. Best when you drink this as soon as possible after it’s made but put in a mason jar filled to the top if you want to keep it for a day. I would drink this within 24 hours.

SMOOTHIE

1 1/2 cups coconut water

3 tablespoons almond milk, unsweetened

5 almonds

1 cup frozen blackberries

1/2 cup pineapple chunks
