I’ve been making this salad for nearly two years now. It is so nutritious and tasty that even after having it at least once a week, I still love it. Part of the reason it is so delicious is thanks to its yummy dressing. You may never have thought of putting avocado in a dressing before, but it makes it lovely and creamy (and it’s a perfectly effortless way to get your children to eat their greens).

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 head lettuce, leaves separated
1 small cucumber, chopped
3 vine tomatoes, chopped
2 spring onions, chopped
large handful black olives
1 red onion, sliced
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
20g pine nuts, toasted

For the blood-orange dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 blood orange, juiced
120ml apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari
handful fresh coriander
handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
handful fresh mint
1 small garlic clove
1 tablespoon raw honey
or 1 date, pitted
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Combine the lettuce leaves, cucumber, tomatoes, spring onions, olives, red onion, half the avocado and the pine nuts in a large salad bowl.
  2. Put all the dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor with the remaining avocado and blitz until smooth. This is a thick dressing, so if you’d like it thinner, add 1–2 tablespoons water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Smother your salad with the dressing and watch it be devoured.

Note

  • Not only do blood oranges have the benefit of a huge amount of Vitamin C, they also contain anthocyanins, antioxidants found in berries and red wine.
