orange, spinach and watercress salad
Lunch

orange, spinach and watercress salad

Fresh and healthy greens are combined with a tangy citrus vinaigrette, making this one of my favourite Sugar Safe® light lunches.

Serves: 2-3 people

For the vinaigrette:

Ingredients

2 large oranges

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

Himalayan salt

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 to 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Method

Segment one of the oranges and squeeze the juice from the other into a bowl. Heat a small frying pan and add this juice. Allow it to simmer and reduce until it forms a syrup-like consistency. Transfer it to a bowl and allow it to cool. Then add the vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil. Whisk and set aside.

To assemble the salad:

Ingredients

2 and 1/2 cups of combined watercress and spinach

2 and 1/2 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped

Method

In a bowl, gently combine the salad greens and toss with the vinaigrette. Add the orange segments from above, toss again and serve.

Andy’s Sugar Safe® Tips

Sprinkle a handful of toasted pumpkin seeds and walnuts over the top, or serve with a side of lemon chicken to add protein content.
