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:
2 large oranges
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
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:
2 and 1/2 cups of combined watercress and spinach
2 and 1/2 cups iceberg lettuce, chopped
In a bowl, gently combine the salad greens and toss with the vinaigrette. Add the orange segments from above, toss again and serve.

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