Alicia’s Inspired Salad

Serves 2

This recipe comes from Hollywood actress and activist Alicia Silverstone’s book on the vegan lifestyle, “The Kind Diet.”  Alicia suggests to try adding English peas, snap peas, or sprouts to the recipe and serving with black bean stew and rice.

Salad

Fresh salad greens such as red leaf, butter lettuce, or romaine
1 small handful of arugula
1/2 avocado, peeled and diced
1/2 heirloom tomato
1/2 medium cucumber, chopped into bite-size pieces (keep the peel if it’s organic)
4 dandelion greens (optional, but good for you)
1/2 carrot, shaved with a vegetable peeler
3-4 chopped fresh basil sprigs
4-5 chopped fresh cilantro sprigs
1 tsp. hemp seeds (optional)
1-2 tbsp. toasted sunflower seeds, lightly seasoned with shoyu

Dressing

2 1/2 tbsp. truffle-infused olive oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Juice of 1/2 orange
1/2 tsp. grated vegan Parmesan cheese

Get a big salad bowl that makes you happy with lots of room to toss and play. Wash, tear, and throw in the lettuce. Add the arugula, tomato and cucumber. Top with dandelion greens, carrot shavings, and herbs. Sprinkle with hemp and sunflower seeds. Pour the dressing ingredients directly onto the salad and toss. (If you want to mix them first, go for it.)

Rave Reviews

I bought my first bag of your Valencia oranges at Whole Foods and I am thrilled to experience the taste of childhood oranges. We used to stop on the side of the road and Dad would pick and orange or two and we would relish the sloppy, tasty treat. Yours are the organic orange of choice for me! — Sharon M.
