peach melba-inspired salad

peach and raspberry salad

I’ve got a cool new salad for you … a Peach Melba-Inspired Salad, that is! It’s kind of like a savory interpretation of peach melba, which is a classic dessert featuring peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream. In other words, it’s a leafy salad starring peaches in two ways, whole raspberries and, instead of scoops of ice cream, balls of plant-based cheese.

It’s dressed with a lovely peach vinaigrette that I make with Karuna JOY-D Whole Plant Juice. Altogether, it’s fresh, vibrant, and aromatic … and fun to fix.

peach and raspberry saladWondering what the Karuna JOY-D Whole Plant Juice is all about? Here are three of the reasons why I’m a fan!

  • (1) The prebiotic whole plant smoothie is deliciously fruity from peach, mandarin and kiwi … with no added sugar.
  • (2) It’s got naturally-occurring plant-based vitamin D from mushrooms – a 12 fluid ounce (360 milliliter) bottle has 50% DV vitamin D!
  • (3) It’s USDA certified organic. (Plus, it’s in a BPA-free bottle. Remember to recycle it, of course!)

Hope you enjoy the salad … often!
