Would you believe it; I'm actually NOT a salad person.
Growing up in Brazil I was raised on beef, beef, beef... sometimes some lettuce and tomatoes on the side next to the rice and beans. My best friend could eat a salad every day of her life and be satisfied, and when told I'd be going to a restaurant where my only option was salad I'd cry out in rage "I DON'T WANT RABBIT FOOD" or "I DO NOT WANT TO EAT GRASS"
I'm a bit of a drama queen when it comes to salads, turns out though... they just weren't being made the way I wanted. In Colorado getting high quality produce is nearly impossible, most things are shipped green and frozen and left to ripen in the stores giving it that delicious sandy/cottony/nothingness taste. Thanks to Melissa's Produce I've been getting boxes of delicious fresh organic produce to my home at my convenience, from tropical fruits to family produce boxes that keep our household full and nourished.
its true that when you eat greens, you crave greens. And this salad is the whole damn rainbow!
On a bed of arugula, chard and kale, rests slices of cucumbers and boiled (and cooled) beets. slices of oranges along with spiralized raw zucchini noodles topped with shredded carrots.
1/2 An avocado
3 tbsp lemon juice

1-2 tbsp non dairy milk

☾ Wash potatoes, you can cook as is or halve them first.
☾ let potatoes cool and using a melon baller or a spoon dig most of the inside out leaving a thin shell (it'll be your preference how thick since the shell will be unflavored potato).
