Swiss Chard Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing

Swiss Chard

I have no idea who to thank for this incredible dressing recipe--I think it might be Kelli??, but this is now our new favorite--at least for my daughter and I that is. I even made it tonight and put it on some red cabbage, raisins, apples, raw soaked walnuts and sweet onion. Fabulous!!

Maple-Balsamic Dijon Vinaigrette
2 T EVOO or oil of choice
1 T balsamic
2 tsp pure maple syrup (this isn't raw)
2 tsp organic Dijon
1 small clove garlic, pressed
Whisk well and serve.

Swiss Chard Salad
1 bunch of rainbow Swiss chard, thinly sliced
1 organic apple, diced and drizzled with lemon juice
1 handful of organic raisins
1/3 C raw walnuts, soaked overnight
sweet onion, finely diced
fresh sprouts (to garnish)
raw sesame seeds (to garnish)
Enjoy this amazing salad tossed with the Maple-Balsamic Dijon Vinaigrette. It is fabulous!!
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for the "Wednesday Farmer's Market" that I went to after finishing up teaching our 6 year old. I got some amazing organic greens (kale, baby romaine, dill, Swiss chard and collards) but had to settle for conventional grape tomatoes, radishes, grapefruit, and sweet onion--but at least the conventional stuff was local as well as the organic.

I made a dressing just like that the other day. Agave works too if people are wanting to be more raw or lower glycemic. I love this combo.
