With my hands bare,
The scents cut through
The breeze in my hair.
Colors of the rainbow
In this salad of mine,
With a drizzle sour
And ingredients fine.
Crisp like tomorrow
Lush like lovers sweet,
This mixture from heaven
Will make you skip a beat.”
1 packet baby spinach leaves or rocket
2 tablespoons fresh goat cheese
1 cup chopped mixed peppers (red, green, yellow)
2 tablespoons corn kernels
½ apple, sliced
¼ cup fresh raspberries
½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon almonds or walnuts, chopped
1 small bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped coarsely
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon dry thyme
In a cup, mix the lemon juice, honey, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Heat it a little if the ingredients aren’t mixing well. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.

In a bowl, mix all the salad ingredients (except ½ the goat cheese and nuts) with the dressing. Give it a good toss. Sprinkle the remaining goat cheese and nuts on top and serve fresh. Colorful and crisp!
