Oh Nooos! Kencent has gone and suffered a leg injury on the ski hill. I want to help so I will be feeding him extra healthy meals to speed up his recovery. That's where this salad comes from. The bonus is that it tastes most excellent. But it has every good thing imaginable inside.
1 head of romaine lettuce, washed , dried & sliced
1 red grapefruit, cut peel away & segments removed between the membranes using a sharp knife, do this over a bowl and reserve the juice
1 navel orange, cut peel away & segments removed between the membranes using a sharp knife, do this over a bowl and reserve the juice
2 small kiwi fruits, cut in half & fruit scooped out with a spoon
1/4 cup fresh blueberries, washed
1/4 cup fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
1 small avocado, cut in half, stone removed and avocado flesh scooped out and cubed.
2 scallions, washed and chopped
1/2 cup sunflower sprouts, washed and chopped
1 Tbsp shelled hemp seed
1/4 cup organic raw walnuts
1 Tbsp reserved fruit juice (see above)
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. cold pressed organic canola oil
1 1/2 tsp. cold pressed organic flax seed oil
salt & pepper to taste
1. Prep all of your fruits into one bowl and your greens into another separate bowl. That way you can save any leftovers for the next day or prepare this ahead for lunch.
2. Combine your salad dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
3. In a large bowl, add salad greens and fruit until desired portion is reached. Pour some dressing over and toss all to combine. Sprinkle with hemp seeds and walnuts. Serve immediately.
