watercress, daikon and avocado salad

After spending the afternoon yesterday cleaning our entire condo, I was in need of a refreshing smoothie!

I added 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 8 frozen strawberries, 1 banana, 1 scoop berry vega protein powder and 1 cup of coconut water.

It hit the spot and held me over until dinnertime.

For dinner, we headed to Josh and Sarah’s.  They had a fancy appetizer waiting for us when we got there.

Apparently it is a ricotta mouse, raspberry preserves and olive oil.  Served on fresh bread, it was delicious!  I can’t wait to recreate it. 🙂

We made a salad to bring over for dinner.  I used the recipe from the Clean Food cookbook for the Watercress, Daikon and Avocado Salad with Mustard Seed Dressing.

I used the watercress from our CSA box and added a little green leaf lettuce for volume.  Then, chopped up the daikon radish and avocado and mixed up the dressing.

It was great!  I loved the spiciness from the mustard seeds.

For dessert, they made a mixed berry dish.  Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries mixed with a little sugar and Grand Marnier.  Served with vanilla frozen yogurt.

Super delicious!  Summertime berries are the best.
