Modern RootsA super dose of antioxidants in this cucumber salad. All the ingredients are fresh from the garden making it cost effective and easy to put together.

Yields 2 side salads.

Ingredients:
2 leaves of kale – core removed, Julianne cut
10 to 15 Sungold, or any grape tomatoes, sliced
5 leaves Swiss chard, Julianne cut
5 leaves purple opal basil – any basil will be great – Julianne cut
1/4 cup feta cheese
1 long cucumber, cut in half moons
1 tablespoon fresh parsley

Toss all together.

Dressing:
1 teaspoon flax oil
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/8 cup raw apple cider
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt – sea salt is great, too
1 to 2 tablespoons raw honey – I like 2 tablespoons but if you don't like as sweet use 1
2 pinches of pepper

Whisk together until it emulsifies, pour over salad – enjoy immediately! Wonderful with pizza or serve with a grilled chicken breast, salmon, or flank steak for an entree.
