Homemade cannabis-infused white balsamic vinaigrette gives the recipe a medicated twist and compliments this light summery salad without compromising the array of beautiful colors.
Here’s What You Need:
Rainbow Summer Salad Ingredients
- 3 medium sized radishes (sliced)
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1 1/2 large carrots (shredded)
- 1/2 cup mandarin orange slices
- 1 1/2 large golden beets (quartered)
- 10 oz bag of spring mix lettuce
- 1 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 cup purple cabbage (diced)
- Optional: croutons, sesame seeds
White Balsamic Vinaigrette Ingredients
- 1 cup cannabis infused extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 4-6 tablespoons organic honey
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
How to Make Rainbow Summer Salad With White Balsamic Vinaigrette
Begin by combining all of the white balsamic vinaigrette ingredients together in a bowl and whisking them for 30 seconds or until well blended. Then place the dressing to the side until ready to serve. Consider storing it in a glass mason jar.
Next, begin to prep the produce. Be sure to wash all veggies thoroughly to start.
Begin by slicing the radishes. Then, peel the carrots so that you are left with the carrot shavings. Once that is complete, dice the purple cabbage into small bite-size chunks, and then peel the mandarin oranges and separate the slices. Finally, peel the golden beets and quarter them into small bite-size pieces.
In a large bowl add the mixed lettuce, radish, carrot, mandarin orange, purple cabbage, golden beets, tomatoes, blueberries, and any optional toppings such as croutons or sesame seeds. Give the entire bowl a good toss using clean hands.
Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, you may choose to either drizzle in the cannabis white balsamic vinaigrette while giving the salad another toss, or serve alongside the dressing in order to give everyone a chance to medicate to their individual needs.
