Ingredients

  • 1 cup spring mix leaves
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 2 radish leaves
  • 5 colourful cherry tomatoes
  • 4 asparagus
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1/4 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp almond ricotta cheese

Dressing

  • 6 leaves basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp organic lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Add some water to a small pot and bring to a boil.

  • Slice the radish, cucumber, and yellow bell pepper. Cut the asparagus sticks in half.
  • In a large bowl, add the spring mix with the spinach. If your radish came with their leaves, you can also add the radish leaves in there. Add all of the sliced vegetables and the cherry tomatoes. Add the almond ricotta over.

For the basil vinaigrette
