Undaria Pinnatifida - Feeds Your Tummy and Your SKin!

OSEA soaks the USDA Certified Organic algae in barrels of botanical oils for six months to naturally distill all those healing vitamins, minerals and nutrients into their most potent, purest forms.

Tasty Summer Salads From the Garden

We are back again with MORE delectables for you from professional Chef Sherrie Robbins!  Today, Sherrie brought in these three fabulous summer salads.  By now, you may be noticing that she makes use of the EVOO Marketplace oils and vinegars.  If you haven't been playing in the kitchen as a hobby and don't have some of the staples/herbs and spices that are referenced in these recipes, I highly recommend making a trip to the store and getting some.  These lovely oils and vinegars can turn a simple dish into something quite spectacular. Below I have referenced 2 local EVOO stores and the address for HMART where you can find some other fun vinegar finds!

My favorite of this bunch was the Roasted Radishes!  They were an awesome surprise...I mean, who roasts radishes?  I guess Sherrie does! And now, we all will.  But truly each of these salads was delicious. Definitely try them all!

Let us know how you like these simple summer salads and any modifications you may try as well!

The delectable finished product - Apple Fennel Salad - YUM!

This is a great summertime salad. It is so refreshing, crisp, and light! Perfect for these hot summer days. In the winter I roast this salad in the oven and serve it along side baked sausages, roast pork tenderloin, and baked new potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 Fennel Bulb, washed,ribs removed, bottom cut off, and cut in half width-wise (save some fronds for garnishing)
  • 1 Granny Smith or Honey Crisp Apple, washed, cut in quarters, seeds removed
  • 2 Tbsp Peach Balsamic Vinegar from EVVO Marketplace
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Olive Oil from EVVO Marketplace Directions

Directions

Salad Portion

  1. After washing, removing the ribs and cutting the bottom off the fennel bulb, cut the bulb in half width-wise. Remove the triangular core then slice the fennel as thin as you can.
  2. Slice the apple quarters thin as well, or you can just dice them in medium sized chunks if you prefer.
  3. Toss the two ingredients in a bowl, sprinkle in some fennel fronds and add the dressing and give a toss. Refrigerate until serving.

Dressing

  1. Combine the Peach Balsamic Vinegar and Lime Olive Oil in a small bowl.
  2. Add a pinch of black pepper if desired.
  3. Mix well and add to salad.

This salad does not keep well so plan on eating it the day you make it!

And we are ready to forge every single booth on your behalf starting FRIDAY!  Every year, we head back to the Natural Products EXPO WEST in Anaheim to not only find new exciting goodies for you to taste and purchase right at YAO, but to also find out about the top new exciting things you will be finding at your local grocers: Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Sprouts and eventually trickling into King Soopers, Target and Safeway as well. 

OUR GUIDELINES ACROSS THE BOARD:

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free

  • Non-GMO/Project Verified (if possible)
  • Organic
  • No Corn/Soy (if possible)
  • Low in sugar (if possible)
  • Local company (if possible)

Though these are our ideal criteria, we also recognize that you need options from which to select at the store and not everything will meet all of these.  The top 5 are the most important and the others listed are vegan icing on the gluten free cake.  So we use these as GUIDELINES in our selection process and not hard and fast criteria.

  • New Bars
  • Jerkies/Meat Sticks
  • Tasty new Chocolate bars/Candies
  • Treats that can be enjoyed by those of you needing a sugar free option!
