I addition to running and working out Richie and I have been trying to improve our health by eating less and eating better. We’re making a few small changes here and there that will hopefully add up to better health in the big picture of things. Neither of us get enough fruits and vegetables (especially Richie) so we are trying to add more into our daily life. Tonight, I added a simple fruit salad to our dinner. It was quick and easy to make and tasty to boot!
Balsamic Fruit Salad
Fresh Fruit – I used 1 banana, 3 large strawberries, about 20 blueberries, 20 grapes and 2 cuties. Use what you have on hand.
2 Tbs. Agave Nectar
3 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Mint (optional)
Chop your fruit into bite sized pieces and add to a bowl. In a separate small bowl prepare the dressing. Zest one small lime into the bowl then add the juice of the lime. If your lime is large just use half of it. Add agave nectar, balsamic vinegar and stir. Grate in a little bit of fresh ginger and add salt and pepper to taste. Whisk together and then pour over the fruit. If desired, chop a few mint leaves and add to the salad. Stir, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of your dinner.
