Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD
  • 3 cups Romaine Lettuce, washed, dried and cut in 1" pieces
  • 1/2 Radicchio, sliced in thin ribbons
  • 3 Kale (curly)washed with spine removed and torn into small pieces
  • 1 Carrot, shaved in ribbons with a vegetable peeler
  • Broccolini, sliced thin
  • 2 Green Onions, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced length-wise
  • 1 Avocado, sliced in 1" pieces
  • 6-8 Brussel Sprouts, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 1 small Fennel, ends trimmed, thinly sliced about 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries, fresh washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup Pecans, whole
  • Flake Sea Salt and freshly ground lemon pepper for serving Maldon
  • FOR THE LEMON VINAIGRETTE
  • 6 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 tablespoons Lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons Honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Mayo, or non-dairy mayo
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  • MAKE THE SALAD
  • Prepare all the vegetables as directed and arrange them by distributing the ingredients as evenly as possible on four plates or bowls. Alternatively, you can use a large platter.
  • MAKE THE VINAIGRETTE
  • Whisk all the ingredients except the olive oil together in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Drizzle in the olive oil slowly while whisking to combine and emulsify the mixture.
    Taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking - meaning you can add a bit more honey or salt or pepper.

Notes

  • I buy organic vegetables whenever possible, and they are preferred here.
  • You can use regular broccoli instead of the smaller broccolini, just slice it thinly so it isn't a challenge to eat.
  • Try walnuts instead of pecans if you like!
  • Add 1/2 cup cooked grains like quinoa for an even heartier salad.
