Elm Leaf Salad Special

  • 1/4 cup onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup lightly ground almonds
  • 1 avocado, diced

Collect your elm leaves from the nearby fast growing shade trees near your home and give thanks for their great service in helping cool our planet in addition to their delicious leaves.  It is fun to start eating trees.  Not only do you get a sense of the good lives that koala bears or monkeys live, but we also benefit from their great deep and wide root systems providing us with a whole new rainbow set of minerals for our health.  Combine all the ingredients and drizzle with sunflower oil and apple cider vinegar with a dash of raw soy sauce.
