Print Friendly 

Description:
This recipe is packed with flavour...a great way to get your family addicted to salads! The kids will love the blueberries plus they have such great health benefits for all the family. Blueberries are rich in Vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene as well as rich in the minerals potassium, manganese, magnesium. They are very high in fiber and low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. But this is just the tip of the nutritional iceberg, for recent studies tell us that of all fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries provide the most health-protecting antioxidants, those valuable elements which prevent cancer-causing cell damage and may limit the changes wrought by age related diseases. The properties of blueberries cross the blood brain barrier to effect these benefits. Antioxidants help to stop the production of free radicals. Free radicals are groups of atoms that impair the cells and the immune system which leads to disease. Anti-oxidants bind the the free electrons in free radicals.

Ingredients:
½ onions chopped
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp curry powder
½ tsp mustard powder

½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp celery seed
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup honey
1 cup safflower oil

Salad:
1 bag spinach leaves
½ cup toasted almonds
½ red onion – diced
1 ½ cups blueberries

Optional:
Feta crumbles



Directions:
In a blender combine 1st set of ingredients, plus turmeric, celery seed and salt. Blend well, then add vinegar and honey until creamy. In a steady stream slowly add oil.

You will have dressing left over to make further salad.
Top with grilled chicken or salmon for a meal, or serve as a side.

Note: Best if dressing made the day before.

Store remainder of dressing in glass container with lid and refrigerate.


Notes: Agave can be substituted for honey if blood sugars are a concern.

Wellness Tip
The Bread Test
The loaf should feel heavy and look dense. Black is beautiful. Put your fingers and thumb around the top of the loaf. If you can squeeze the loaf from the outside more than an inch towards the centre with very little pressure, it fails the test. Read the label. If the bread contains white flour, sugar, hydrogenated fat or salt, it fails the test.

Recipe
Caponata
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This is an excellent fall recipe as it uses up lots of the fall harvest veggies. Caponata (Sicilian: capunata) is a Sicilian aubergine dish, a cooked vegetable salad made from chopped fried eggplant and celery seasoned with sweetened vinegar, and capers in a sweet and sour sauce.[1] Numerous local variations of the ingredients exist with some versions adding olives, carrots and green bell peppers, and others adding potatoes, or pine nuts and raisins. Today, caponata is typically used as a side dish for fish dishes and sometimes as an appetizer, but since the 1700s it has also been used as a main course.
