Description

Packed with whole food ingredients that have amazing anti-inflammatory properties and healthy fats, this Blueberry Salmon Power Salad makes for a light yet totally satisfying lunch.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups watercress
  • 170g smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup raw unsalted walnut halves/pieces
  • 1/2 small ripe avocado, sliced or diced
  • 2-3 tbsp thinly sliced or minced red onion
  • 1 tbsp each torn or thinly sliced fresh mint and basil
  • to garnish: sprouts – radish, sunflower, pea – whatever you like

Ginger Citrus Vinaigrette (you will have some leftover):

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp raw honey
  • sea salt + black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Make the dressing: In a small container or mason jar, shake up all of the ingredients. Add a few pinches of sea salt + black pepper to taste. (Alternatively, if you want it to be super smooth, use a food processor to blend out the ginger bits.) Set aside.
  • Wash the greens, trimming if needed. Pat dry with a paper towel and place them in a big bowl with the herbs, blueberries and walnuts. Add some of the dressing and toss well to coat.
  • Gently mix in the avocado, then divide the greens between two bowls.
  • Arrange the smoked salmon pieces between the bowls, followed by the sprouts to garnish. Serve with additional dressing on the side if needed.
