Beet and Kale Salad Recipes & What to do with Mint

I've been getting spearmint and peppermint from one of my CSA shares.  
What to do with it??

You can make  Spearmint or Peppermint Infused Water
Infused Water~
This batch of water includes
fresh spearmint
1 organic navel orange
goji berries
liquid stevia
I placed this in the fridge overnight and it was ready in the morning.
I waited to add the stevia to each glass.

Mint tea's help the body to stay cool in the heat.  I try to keep some in the fridge all summer long.

Or make some Tabbouleh~


1 bunch of parsley~chopped fine
1 bunch of cilantro~chopped fine
4 tomatoes~diced
4-6 stalks of celery~diced
4 green onions~chopped
2 c. cooked quinoa or for all raw use hemp seeds
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t. cumin
2-3 T. fresh MINT
black pepper to taste

Tonight we enjoyed this Tabbouleh with lemon Tahini dressing (tahini, lemon juice, Bragg's Liquid Aminos and water to thin)..I like to drizzle this dressing over my salad. On the table was garlic hummus and warm pita bread. 

We also recieved Beets in our share.
Here is one of my favorite raw recipes:
Beet Salad
1 bunch of beets peeled and shredded
5-6 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 c. ev olive oil
1/4 c. lemon juice
dash of salt
dash of ground cloves
mix and let marinate for a bit.

Did you know that  CLOVES neutralize garlic breath?
Remember clove gum?
I used to love it!
This is not garlic clove. 

1 bunch of kale
mini sweet pepperrs~chopped
chives~finely chopped
Chinese Five Spice to taste
 lemon juice
extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan salt
handful of raw pumpkin seeds

1/4 to 1/3 c. of  raw sesame seeds
2 garlic cloves
Himalayna  salt to taste

Remember to smile today
