"Superfood Kitchen" by Julie Morris features plant-based, nutrient-dense recipes loaded with antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and more.
When a fruit salad tastes this good, getting a full day’s ration of fresh produce in just one sitting is almost inevitable. This recipe is flexible enough to accommodate in-season fruits—feel free to improvise—but try to keep the superberries in. The goji berries and goldenberries will soften as the fruit marinates, soaking up the juices from the fruits, making them especially delicious.
• 3 cups pineapple, cut into 1-inch cubes
• 2/3 cup dried goldenberries
• 1/2 cup dried goji berries
• 3 cups strawberries, quartered
• 1 cup blueberries
• 3 cups green grapes, halved
• 2 cups apples, cut into 1-inch cubes
• 1 cup pomegranate seeds
• 2 tablespoons agave nectar or yacon syrup
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Combine all fruits in a large bowl.
2. In a small glass, mix together agave and vanilla.
3. Pour over fruit and toss gently. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours to let flavors marry.
4. Toss before serving. Will last for several days refrigerated. Serves 6
