Summer Salad Farmer’s Market Challenge Menu From The Healthy Apple

FMC-Menu-TheHealthyApple | Amie Valpone Kale Summer Salad Recipes When the weather dips below 30 degrees, I admit that my best Farmer’s Market intentions usually fall victim to a fleece blanket and my Seamless web app. But come summer, I make up for lost time.

Martha’s Vineyard is my happy place, and there’s nowhere else in the world where I’d rather load up my basket with goodness from the garden and spend all week cooking it.

As you may remember from my Gut Guilt month, I’ve been trying to challenge myself to make it to the market once a week, keep my purchases to a budget of $40, and use the haul to prepare clean meals for the week ahead.

Since I’m trying to keep my head down and plow through pages of my book, I’m enlisting the help of some of my talented food blogging friends to bring you amazing ways to use your own Farmer’s Market Challenge produce. This week I’m sharing inspiration from my dear friend Amie of The Healthy Apple.

Amie is my go-to resource for all things detox. She’s spent the last decade healing herself from chronic illness by overhauling her diet and life. Her story is super inspiring, and she’s just an all-around gem of positivity in the midst of some serious medical trauma.

I hope you’ll check out her amazing summer salad recipes below and hop around her site for more wisdom on anti-inflammatory eating. Also, you can check out our Wellness Wednesday interview from last year on hypothyroidism!

Happy cooking!

    Love the recipes. But – “Coral Snake” Salsa? Really? Ack! (thinking of the most poisonous snake in North America)
