Get Your Greens {On}

by zesty on September 2, 2011 · 1 comment

It’s Friday already and a long weekend to boot!  Whoo Hooo.  I had great visions of sharing some Zoo pictures with you today however I forgot to bring the camera cable with me so not I have no way of transferring the pictures.  Sorry about that… but next week I will for sure.

So with all the traveling and not so healthy eating at times…. I am writing a post for the salad lovers out there.  It is time to get your greens on!  I remember in NYC and Toronto, where I would go a full day of not eating anything green… shhh don’t tell anyone.  Remember you have to live life and take things in moderation.  With that said, I am back on the green wagon and going to share with you a simple salad that really tastes great.


  • 2 Cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 Cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 Avocado, peeled and sliced
  • Lemon juice
  • Sesame seeds, roasted
  • Flax seeds, roasted
  • Olive oil
  • Sliced prosciutto


  1. Preheat a dry pan and roast the seeds and nuts until golden brown.
  2. Prepare the salad base of spinach, prosciutto and avocado.
  3. Add the roasted seeds and nuts.
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil.
  5. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: After you peel your avocado sprinkle it with a hint of lemon juice to avoid it browning on the outside before you eat it.  If it does go brown, don’t throw it out – it is still GOOD.

Oh and I got my black plate back from Mom’s.  It has been there for over a year.  I usually like shooting with white plates but for some reason black looks good sometimes too.  I hope you give this salad a try and let me know what you think.  Have a great long weekend and I will be talking to you bright and early on Labor Day morning.

Take care
