Summer Salad Recipe

There are so many things I love about summer. Tossing together a salad for a picnic beside the lake is top on my list. I have a rule to never leave the house unprepared. On my list of must haves is food, water, change of clothes, chemical free sunscreen, sunglasses, cell phone, health card with list of important medical information, and a first aid kit. Having food with me when I am going to be away from home for more than 3 hours is super important because I don't eat like most Americans. I abstain from sugar, gluten, yeast, processed foods, MSG, high fructose corn syrup, GMO, most dairy, the dirty dozen list (see, non-organically raised meat, most fruits, alcohol, and soy. So I guess you could say that I practice what I preach at Carolina Holistic Health LLC.....and I love to.

Yesterday I decided late morning that I wanted to take a trip up to Lake Keowee with my german shepherd to have a picnic and go swimming. The day was almost half done so a grocery run wasn't possible. Inventing a salad to take with me with what I already had in the fridge is often my best creation. As it turned out this was a delicious, healthy salad and I would like to share it with you.


1 small head of broccoli broken into small pieces
1 large carrot thinly sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple
1 stalk celery chopped
1 large handful of fresh cilantro
1 medium cucumber chopped into bite size pieces
2 uncured, organic chicken hotdogs cut into bite size pieces
1 large serving spoon of veganaise
1 pinch of Himalayan sea salt

I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I did!
