On a crazy-busy or luxuriously lazy Sunday, nothing beats a delicious, nutritious salad that combines the highest-quality organic fruits and vegetables.   

Our weekend recipe features only the finest ingredients, all of which should be available at your local natural and organic food store. Lime juice and a touch of curry powder in the homemade dressing add just the right amount of zing!
