I don’t know about the rest of the world, but it’s hot as hell in Florida right now, which means the less I have to use the oven the better. This Prosciutto and Strawberry AIP salad requires no cooking and comes together in a cinch. It’s also light and refreshing, which is perfect for the summer heat.
Big ass salads are one of my go to lunches. I try to prep proteins liked grilled chicken and steak in advance, but sometimes I get busy and life gets in the way. Prosciutto is one of my favorite AIP salad add ins, and is great for those days that I just can’t cook something up.
Huge thanks to Green Acre Aquaponics for the gorgeous and delicate greens that I used for this salad.

There are endless options for AIP salad dressings, but I like to keep it simple. I even keep KEVOO and Primal Palate spices in my purse so an easy dressing is never far away. It’s great for when I’m on the run and need to grab something to eat.

When it comes to my oils, I stick to the best – Kasandrinos and Primal Kitchen. High quality fats are an essential piece to a healthy diet and an investment worth making. I could drink Kasandrinos by the bottle full. There are a few things I care about when it comes to olive oil – purity, freshness, and flavor. Family owned and operated, Kasandrinos meets the mark. Unlike most commercial olive oils, Kasandrinos presses their olives within 24 hours and only sells the current years harvest – giving us the freshest olive oil possible. The batch in my cupboard was still on trees just weeks before I received it. Fake olive oil is common on grocery store shelves, but you can be assured of the pureness of Kasandrinos as they publish their chemical analysis results here. Why is it important for olive oil to be pure and fresh? Aside from the health benefits, it’s just plain delicious!!! If you don’t want to feel deprived by eating a salad, drizzle it in KEVOO and you’ll be feeling like you are living in luxury.
