Any variety of salad greens (right out of the garden, or purchased)
Cucumber (sliced or chopped)
Grape or cherry tomatoes
Fresh mango (chopped)
****Optional: Add some grilled steak, seafood, or chicken to make it a meal!
Grapefruit Vinaigrette: (Yields about 12oz.)
4 oz. grapefruit juice (1 large grapefruit, or can purchase)
1 T. honey
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 T. fresh chopped basil
1 T. fresh chopped mint
1 t. salt
pepper to taste
For the dressing: In a blender bottle, (these bottles are designed for mixing protein shakes/drinks, and can be found in most stores), or a bowl with a whisk, add the grapefruit juice, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Shake up, or mix together until combined. If using blender bottle, pour in all of the oil, and shake vigorously until emulsified. If whisking by hand, stream oil in while whisking vigorously. Add the basil, mint, salt and pepper, and shake or whisk again until combined. ***You could also make this in a mason jar, and store in the refrigerator for the next time! (Will keep for about 2 weeks.)
For the salad: Prep your salad. Right before serving, shake up your vinaigrette again, and drizzle over your salad. Sprinkle chia seeds over top, and serve!
