Arugula Salad with Watermelon Raddish
I love coming up with different salad recipes. Especially beautiful ones! There’s something incredibly chic about a simple salad using fresh ingredients. Here’s a salad that looks just as amazing as it tastes! This gorgeous salad is actually very, very simple to make. If you can’t find watermelon radishes you can substitute regular radishes instead.
Just look at those gorgeous colors!
I used one of my favorite dressings from one of my favorite books, Raw Food Real World. I adapted their avocado based recipe and made it oil free.
For the dressing you’ll need:
- 1 small avocado
- 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice (or a combination of both would also be lovely!)
- 1 handful cilantro
- 1 green onion, use the white portion and 1 inch of the green
- 1 small shallot
- 1/2 tsp sea salt to taste
- tiny squirt of liquid stevia (I always order my mine through iherb.com, you can use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 off your first order)
- fresh ground cracked pepper
Put all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
To construct the salad, simply use your favorite salad greens or a mixture of greens (I used the arugula I got last week from Boggy Creek Farm) and top with macadamia nuts, avocado dressing, and watermelon radishes sliced thinly with a mandolin.
The only prep work comes from making the dressing which is ridiculously easy! Don’t let easy recipes fool you, sometimes the most simple dishes are the most delicious! Plus, your friends will think you are extra fancy 😉
I finished mine off with some of the rediculously good vanilla macaroons I made earlier this week – a perfect combo!!
