1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 cups mixed veggies (steamed: sliced small red potatoes, carrots, or beets, green beans, peas; raw: sliced radishes, cucumbers or tomatoes)
1/2 container organic romaine lettuce or 6 leaves
Optional: grilled or sautéed shrimp with your choice of flavoring I love Old Bay if you want to add protein to make a Magic Plate, 1 hard-boiled egg, sliced, 1 thick slice of red onion, broken into rings and crumbled feta, or farmer’s cheese for garnish
Whisk coconut oil and olive oils, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until thoroughly blended. Add mixed veggies and toss to coat.
Line a large serving platter with lettuce. Scoop the dressed veggies onto a plate or platter. Surround with egg, onion and cheese, if desired.
