Traditionally Nanaimo bars are an unapologetically sweet and decadent treat hailing from Canada. If you make the original version you would use a layer of graham cracker crumbs, a layer of light custard buttercream, and a smooth glossy layer of chocolate to tie everything together. Well, thanks to Nicole Axworthy we can leave those processed and less than ideal ingredients on the store shelves and instead pick up some raw cacao powder, cacao and coconut butter, dates, raw nuts, fresh mint leaf and extract, avocado, and raw agave nectar to make a version that will rival traditional Nanaimo bars in both decadent deliciousness and charming visual presentation!
This salad takes its inspiration from a well-known Lebanese dish and combines the ultra fresh tastes of cucumber, mint, and parsley with tomato, red and green onion, and red bell pepper. The dressing is a light olive oil and lemon juice fusion with a bit of crushed garlic and raw honey. Then to add a nice crunch and zing the salad is sprinkled with a sesame seed and sumac "za'atar". Sumac is actually an amazing spice that comes from a berry and is fantastic for digestion. It packs a zesty tart taste and is full of anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that can also be found in foods like blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and acai. Before gobbling up your salad add some olives, crumbled flax crackers, or turn it into a filling meal by adding fresh chickpeas or a nut based hummus, avocado slices, etc. This salad absolutely screams freshness and is packed with flavor.
