In my ongoing battle to introduce my fiancé to the bliss of healthy eating, I am occasionally granted a small victory. The Superfoods Rx Salad is one of them. Incredibly simple to assemble, this dish is also one of the few culinary items that P and I agree on. In fact, I’m convinced that this salad actually makes our relationship better–it’s couples’ therapy in a bowl.

I think P digs the Rx because it has some fat (avocado, olive oil), and I dig it because I can stab up to six vegetables with one forkful (see recipe below). I recommend eating a variation of this salad every day. It’ll take care of all of your vegetable needs and may possibly save your relationship:

Include as much or as little of each ingredient as you see fit. You can’t go wrong. Check out the source of the salad for more incredible superfood recipes.

Romaine lettuce
Shredded red cabbage
Sliced red bell pepper
Chopped tomato
Grated carrot
Cubed avocado
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
A nice sprinkle of sea salt
Fresh-ground pepper

Optional: a handful of chopped herbs (basil works great), a bit of Parmigiano cheese or some nuts or seeds. Yum.

Is there a meal that brings you closer to your mate?
