As soon as the heat of summer arrives our thought quickly shift to eating outdoors, grilling out over an open flame, smoked meats and barbeques on the block, fresh squeezed lemonade, and the ubiquitous refreshing fruit salad. If your state is now a legal cannabis state, you can’t let summer pass you by without making this gorgeous cannabis-infused salad. Utilizing seasonal fruit, fresh young cannabis leaves, and several cannabis-infused pantry items to create a well-rounded mix of cannabinoids to feed your endocannabinoid system in the heat of the summer sun. The simple dressing used is a cannabis-infused smoky lemonade vinaigrette to brighten the juicy fruit. Let’s talk about that burrata cheese for a second. Burrata means buttered in Italian, so yeah, you already know it is going to be outstanding. It is a fresh Italian cheese, that comes in a very delicate soft ball. When you cut into it, cream oozes out. It is extremely rich, creamy, and so damn divine. If you haven’t tried burrata yet, run, don’t walk to the store, and buy yourself a chunk right now… (don’t forget the stone fruit). Quick warning… once you have tasted it, you will be addicted. This salad is absofuckenlutely gorgeous any way you present it and only takes minutes to prepare. Take advantage of the summer's finest stone fruit and heirloom tomatoes as well as the everchanging cannabis laws in this country. PAGE 49
