Coronation Salad

Standard

Springtime is just around the corner and the warmer the weather gets the more appealing a light and warm salad becomes. This protein topped green wonder is drizzled in a subtle-curry dressing and takes just a few minutes to prepare.

INGREDIENTS

5 shrimp or 5 thin organic chicken strips (hereafter referred to as “protein”)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon curry powder (makes a mild curry sauce)
1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups tossed greens (baby spinach and kale make a great, healthy combination)
1 peach, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon organic dried blueberries (can be substituted with cranberries or goji berries)

RECIPE

In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil at medium heat.
Add your protein choice and cook until well done and slightly browned.
Add the coconut milk, curry powder and garlic and stir together with the protein until well blended. Allow to simmer for 2-4 minutes; the sauce will thicken slightly.
Place tossed greens on a plate and arrange peaches for presentation.
Place the cooked protein on the salad bed and top with the curried dressing.
Sprinkle with blueberries and serve while the protein is still warm.

And there you have it–a super easy yet tasty and pretty fancy-looking spring salad to impress yourself and your guests. Simply pair with a crisp glass of Riesling or fruit-infused water and toast to the spring sunshine!
