Fresh Macadamia Date Salad With A Maple Mint Vinaigrette

I can’t help but make salads this time of year.  It’s the best dish when it’s hot out, and the produce is so fresh this time of year.  I never cared for traditional garden salad with iceburg lettuce, tomato, cucumber and ranch dressing.  I like my salads to have some creative pizazz!  I like my salads to excite my taste buds.  I like salads that are a little unexpected, with a melody of delicious flavors that work together in perfect harmony.

I cam up with this salad when my husband was coming home for lunch.  I wanted to sit down together and eat something nice.  I grilled some steaks to eat with the salad.  It was a lovely meal.  The minty vinaigrette works wonders to cool you down after being out in the heat.

Salad Ingredients:

1 large handful of butter lettuce

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

6 strawberries, thinly sliced

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup chopped dates

Directions: Toss everything together!

Maple Mint Vinaigrette:

1/4 cup avocado oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp salt

1 sprig of fresh mint

Directions: Blend all ingredients in the blender until smooth.

Pour the blended vinaigrette over the salad and enjoy.  It is absolutely delicious, fresh and flavorful!

This salad pairs wonderfully with steak!
