Pure Bliss Basil Salad

I don’t know about you but the absolutely divine fragrance of basil makes me crazy.  Basil is one of those foods that puts me in a trance, making me sway to music that only my heart and taste buds can hear.If you can’t remember the last time you held a tiny bouquet of fresh basil in your hands and inhaled deeply, you should drop what you are doing right now, run to the store and do just that.  Everything about this salad is a delight, even the preparation, from the soft crunching of the chives underneath the pressure of the knife, that is absolutely sure to remind you of the soft crunching of grass underneath your bare feet on a luscious summer day, to the delicate sweetness of the honeydew.

Pure Bliss Basil Salad

  • arugula and baby spinach mix
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 C chives
  • 1/4 C basil
  • ½ cucumber
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 C honeydew, cubed
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Combine. Enjoy.

My notes of gratitude for this weekend are as follows

  • clean sheets
  • convenience of having a washer and dryer at home
  • having a spouse that does all of my laundry
  • reasonable drive to several grocery stores
  • easy access to fresh produce

My positive jam for the week is “Where You Need to Be”.  This song is packed with positive affirmations.  These lines perfectly capture why it is impossible for me resist this song

you now have love all around and all within your heart
you are whole and where you need to be
you now are peace

  1. What a lovely salad! I just did a post about trying to use up a bunch of basil and I love your recipe. It sounds super fresh and summery!

    I so hear you on having your own washer/dryer. I just got my own a few months ago and I’m in heaven. A very good thing to be grateful for!
