The gourmet description from the menu might read as follows....

Vermont farm high altitude organically grown lettuce mix topped with marinated low sodium ceci beans chilled with chiffonaded red onion and marinated julienne yellow beets infused with unpared baby zucchini (brushed briefly with a zesty basil-stricken dressing) beneath a garnish of wood-fired chick peas and recently harvested left-hand-snipped chive fronds.

But, hell, that is just too high-brow so I am gonna call it LymeBuster salad.

I have Lyme which has  hit me hard and until a specialist can see me (December?  Really?  That is the closest appointment they had to offer?) I am taking matters into my own hands and eating some SERIOUSLY  healthy food .  Today it is this salad.

Ingredients are
canned chick peas , chilled in fridge before opening,
one medium fresh yellow beet, well shredded,
one half of a newly picked baby zucchini, cut in smallish pieces,
one quarter of a large red onion, fairly well diced,
ten leaves of fresh basil (all but three are finely snipped and mixed in, the others are for pretties.)
six small brussel sprout leaves taken from the very tops of the plants,
one quarter cup fresh chives, well chopped,
lettuce of various kinds for bedding,
one quarter cup pine nuts,
one half cup vegan creamy salad dressing,
one quarter cup Saffron Road crunchy chick peas salad topping.

I have to say I have NEVER liked your spinach puffs. NEVER! had even the remotest like or appreciation of beets but things being what they are (like I can hardly move when some new part of my body cries out in pain) I decided I had durn well better start eating those foods that pack a punch of nutrition.  Yellow beets seem to be mild and I have been eating them raw and loving them!  In this recipe, I cannot even taste them, i just experience that awesome crunch and of course the healing qualities of raw whole roots that are known to make a body strong.

This concoction is totally made up on my part due to what is in the garden just now and stuff like that.

thanks for looking.
