Asian-Inspired Summer Salad

I threw this together rather haphazardly yesterday (was too hungry to stop and think) and it turned out to be a total gem. Super quick and easy, packed with greens and refreshingly delicious. The key to the dressing is the grapefruit juice, which is tart and tangy with an underlying sweetness. The health benefits of grapefruits are positively overwhelming too, and include:

  • appetite suppressant

  • flu remedy

  • fatigue remedy

  • digestion aid

  • regulation of sugar levels in diabetics

  • prevention of excess acidity in the body

  • relief for excess flatulence

  • relief from insomnia

  • rich in vitamins C, A, B1 and B6

  • rich in minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium and copper

Step 1 - Combine the following ingredients:

  • Juice of 1/3 grapefruit

  • Splash of coconut vinegar

  • Pinch of mustard

  • Salt and pepper

Step 2 - Slowly whisk in ½ cup of any neutral-tasting oil. I used expeller-pressed organic grapeseed oil, but you could also use flaxseed. Tip: When making an emulsification (e.g. salad dressing) try to ensure that all your ingredients are at the same temperature – it makes the task in hand (#literally #whatapun #boom) easier.

Step 3 - Serve with mixed greens, sugar snaps, avocado, strawberries, grapefruit segments and some chopped almonds.
