Strawberry Fruit Salad
Visiting the produce section is always a fun adventure. I love to see what is new and what has just shown up that wasn’t there last week or even yesterday. On my latest trip, I found blood oranges. They taste similar to regular oranges but have a deep scarlet color. A couple of them came home in my bag and inspired this raw food recipe for strawberry salad. Once again, coconut and chia seeds were used to compliment the fruit and add a nutritious punch. This is a great salad to welcome in the warmer weather.
