Medicated Date & Almond Celery Salad

This salad is one of my favorite dishes on a hot summer day or when I am craving something crunchy when the munchies hit. Jam-packed with dense nutrients such as healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals you won’t expect a sluggish feeling after indulging in a bowl of this delicious salad!

Celery works well as a salad base due to its numerous health benefits including its anti-inflammatory properties, anti-microbial benefits, while providing hydration to vital organs through improved digestion.

  1. Soak dates in warm water for 5 minutes (not necessary with other dried fruit) 
  2. Chop celery into bite-size pieces 
  3. Coarsely chop almonds
