Recipe: Anastasija Jegorova’s Sexy Summer Salad

Summer, says Anastasija Jegorova – creator of Grandmother’s Figs – is for spending loads of time outside, soaking up the sun, munching on berries, feeling sexy and free. This salad is totally that! You can easily make it for an impromptu picnic in minutes, it has one of the sexiest berries as a very playful ingredient, and because it is raw and healthy, this salad will definitely make you feeling sexy, too!
The magic does not end there – avocado is apparently an Aphrodisiac food. Get the energy from the healthy fats and ‘rainbow’ ingredients to run around and feel free!
