Beauty Boosting Vitality Salad w/ Figs + Pomegranate
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
I always try and enjoy one big salad every day. I use whatever fresh greens are in season at the time and I like to vary the leaf variety to get a combination of flavours that just sing in your mouth when you eat it. For this salad, I’ve used leafy greens and vitamin C rich oranges to promote collagen production for healthy skin. I've also drizzled with antioxidant rich avocado oil that is rich in vitamin E to combat skin ageing.
150 g baby spinach leaves
80 g micro-green salad mix (or other green sprouts)
4 figs, cut in half (alternatively you can use kiwi fruit that are high in vitamin C)
1 pomegranate (click here to see how to remove the seeds)
1 orange, peeled and sliced
80 g goats feta
1 tablespoon pistachio nuts or almonds, chopped
few sprigs of fresh thyme
- Toss spinach and micro-salad greens into a large serving bowl.
- Arrange the figs and slices of orange through the salad.
- Remove the seeds from the pomegranate and scatter over and through the salad.
- Combine all the ingredients for the salad dressing and drizzle over the salad.
- Serve and enjoy.
