Healthier Ambrosia

Where I found this recipe I am not sure, but it looks like it may have come from the Hallelujah Acres Diet website. If you have not been there, then go and take a gander. They have some really great things over there. I made this at one of my cooking classes (on a raw class) and let me tell you this was fantastic, and for many reasons. It has basic ingredients and is simple to make. Plus, it is not overpowering to the taste buds. Let me explain that last statement.So many recipes can be in-your-face, but not this one. This is delicate and simple  But simple in a good way,  not a plain boring way.

Make this and use it at anytime you desire. It could easily go form a breakfast food to a dessert. Top it with some cashew cream...yummo. So now let's get down to business.

1 apple chopped
1 orange, peeled seeded and chopped
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raisins (or any small dried fruit)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans will do in a pinch
1/2 cup flaked or shredded coconut

3 T agave or sweetener of your choosing
Juice form 1 lemon
1 T chia seeds
combine all salad ingredients in one bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the agave and lemon juice.Stir in the chia seeds and pour over the salad. this si divine and so delicious. It is one of my favorite dishes to prepare. And as always, make...eat...enjoy!!
