joyous belly “I feel great” salad

joyous belly saladEat something yummy today. It’s Day 8 of our 21 Day Yoga Challenge. Try this recipe. It’s one of my favorites.

Here’s a great light and super healthy salad that your belly will love. This is a belly-balancing, palate cleansing, super-yummy, 4-star easy, Ayurvedic Suzanne original.

Ingredients

  • 1 large cucumber – cut in half length wise, then slice super thin
  • 1 small to medium fennel bulb, sliced super thin
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped cilantro (or less)
  • 1/8 – 1/4 cup finely chopped mint
  • 1/8 cup of good quality olive oil
  • juice of 2 juicy lemons

Let sit for a least 1/2 hour before serving. It’s great the next day too.

As always with cooking, taste as you go. Be prudent to begin. Start with the juice of 1 lemon, 1/8+ cup of olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt. Taste, then add more of each as needed. You can always add more, but you can’t take ingredients out.

 Tip: I use Meyer Lemons when in season

Tip: I can’t stress this enough: be sure to slice the fennel super-thin

Namaste,

Suzanne
