Apricot Blueberry Goji Salad with Basil

Today the kitchen was almost bare – just a few apricots, blueberries, a handful of spinach, lemon, and a bit of fresh basil. OK, that’s perfect! I tossed all these ingredients together – every one loaded with delicious flavor, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and alkaline power. It took about 3 minutes to slice them and blend a dressing. Whew! It was a fabulicious lunch! Try it! Serves 2 people.
