Hazel’s Earthy Grounding Salad

Speaking personally, considering Hazel is *me* in Torus Link, it isn’t exactly easy for me to knowingly craft this salad, eat it, observe, and then share with you that which offers a feeling reminiscent, straight-up, of MYSELF! O__O And just speaking with what I do hope is pragmatism here… I’m not sure ~any~ description I give you can be spoken from me to you about how eating it feels like *me and my own energy* for you. Other than of course, to read me in TL, and make your own conclusions.

I will at least tell you about the flavors I get from the salad itself, though: soft watermelon, buttery golden raisins, mellow olive oil and herbs… and a hint of contrast from nutmeg and grapefruit zest. Not overpowering or heavy, in case you want a lighter salad of your own with some sweetness to it.


  • 2 cups lettuce leaf blend of your choice (I used one with red and romaine lettuces)
  • 1/2 cup chopped watermelon chunks (I used store-bought, pre-cut watermelon to save time)
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1 Tbsp golden raisins
  • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
  • Grapefruit (for 1 tsp grapefruit zest)
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil

Special equipment: citrus zester

Prep time: 10 minutes
Yields: 1 serving


  1. Plate the lettuce leaf blend in a large bowl or onto a plate; top evenly with watermelon chunks, blackberries, raisins, and sesame seeds.
  2. With a citrus zester, zest roughly 1 teaspoon of grapefruit zest on top.
  3. Loosely sprinkle all of the remaining ingredients evenly on top of the salad, drizzling the olive oil last, and then enjoy… what it’s like to eat a salad a la Hazel/me/myself/I. (-___- This feels very, VERY weird for me to say.)

Yasmine’s notes:

-__________- ; Again, everyone… this being Hazel’s salad… it’s so strange, definitely, to knowingly and intentionally MAKE something that speaks me/my energy to you… to even know and be sure of what that is… (and/or to trust and let go to the Universe for it… which if you know how Torus Link works, you’ll know I do 50/50 of both…) And AS me… to then eat it myself, not least to share my findings with you, and… from this salad’s energy, be that much MORE me??????

(I mean, for those of you out there who’d know this reference– imagine if Harry Potter had to tell you what it’s like to be him once you drink polyjuice potion a la himself… as he has to do it first, with one of his own hairs… turning himself… into himself.)

The only saving space I personally have here, then, is that I am equally not just giving you that which describes *me,* because it’s also other life— that of the salad itself– coming forward to make this basic energy that mirrors my own. (***Which, if making these TL-cast-energies salads is fun or intriguing for you, I invite you to perhaps find out what your own salad is too. You may have an easier time sharing it than I do!!)

I will say, having just eaten this salad, I do get an extra-concentrated sense of being myself right now… and I can only describe this as though I’m being turned up very loudly in myself. Hearing my own thoughts on the LOUDEST of volumes.

I guess my thoughts matter. Which is why I’m going to share them with you now, most of all, today.

[Goes off to write and share on the TL Forum, and share this month’s pages, and then some… Because hey, just like this song that does speak to me personally, I can’t stop!]
