Dressings

 

Chicken Bowl

This bowl had grilled chicken breast that I soaked in salt water for an hour then grilled with garlic and onion powder.  I added peaches, watercress, slivered almonds, hard boiled egg (put eggs in lukewarm water, bring to a boil and boil for 7 minutes.  Remove from the heat and put in cold running water for 5 minutes), cucumber, sugar peas, avocado and honey lime dressing. 

Tuna Bowl

This bowl had Wild Planet canned tuna, cucumber, plantains (mandolin sliced plantains, fried in coconut oil), green onions, carrot, sugar peas, spinach, parsley, dill, capers, pine nuts, celery with green goddess dressing. 

Steak Bowl

Grilled steak marinated over night in olive oil, coconut sugar, shallots, and sea salt with radishes, grilled asparagus, walnuts, grilled green onions, grilled sweet potatoes, grilled pearl onions, parmesan cheese and no need for a dressing. 

Salmon Bowl

This salmon bowl comes from the talented Michelle.  I follow her lovely creations on Instagram.  I hope you enjoy this beautiful bowl. 

2-3 handfuls Mache lettuce
1-2 tbsp homemade mayo (I like mine with avocado oil)
2 tbsp homemade macadamia-nut pesto (handful of basil, handful of macadamia nuts and a good dose of olive oil, flavor with sea salt.  Blend together and taste, see if you a little more of this or that.)
3 oz smoked salmon
2 tbsp sauerkraut 
1 pastured egg (hard boiled, soft boiled or fried)
1 tsp lard
Microgreens for extra nutrition and garnish
