Sounds Strange, Tastes Great

The past few days I have been eating very little following the juice fast. I actually kept juicing the day after my 3-day fast ended. It just felt like I should keep going. I have been eating whole foods again but not much in the way of quantity and have only had one or two meals per day. Today I felt like a crunchy salad so I made a delicious curry sauce to toss onto dandelion greens, celery, carrots, and green apple. It sounds strange when you read the sauce's ingredients, but it tastes great!! Later today I will put this same sauce onto some grated cabbage and carrots and have it for dinner. If you thinned the sauce with some more water or lemon juice it would make a lovely dressing for tossed salads, keep it thick and use it as a fruit and veggie dip.
 This recipe is from Bethany Tait and she calls it:
Dandelion Greens with Curry Sauce
1 head dandelion greens, finely chopped
1 carrot, diced
2 green apples, cubed (I used one)
1 stalk of celery (I used two)


Sauce/Dressing/Dip

1 banana
1/2 C soaked sunflower seeds
2 Medjool dates, pitted
juice of 1 lemon
1 scallion (I used onion powder)
1/2-1T curry powder
sea salt
pepper
Using a food processor or blender, process the sauce until smooth, adding water as needed to thin to your likeness. If using as a dip omit the water and keep it thick.




Pour sauce over salad and mix well until all of the vegetables and apples are coated with dressing. Enjoy!
