Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD
  • 3 cups Romaine Lettuce, washed, dried and sliced into 1" strips
  • 1/2 Radicchio, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 3 Kale (curly)washed with spine removed and torn into small pieces
  • 1 Carrot, cut thinly or shaved in ribbons with a vegetable peeler
  • Broccolini, sliced in half to make thin strips
  • 2 Green Onions, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced length-wise
  • 1 Avocado, sliced in 1" chunky pieces
  • 6-8 Brussel Sprouts, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 1 small Fennel, ends trimmed, thinly sliced about 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries, washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup Pecans, whole
  • Flake Sea Salt and freshly ground lemon pepper for serving
  • 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.
    Grouping the same ingredients together looks better if using a large platter. Alternatively, you can toss the salad and plate it dressed with the vinaigrette on salad-sized plates.
  • MAKE THE VINAIGRETTE
  • Whisk all the ingredients except the olive oil together in a medium-sized bowl, or just put the ingredients in a mason jar with lid, shake and serve.

Notes

  • Make Ingredient Swaps:  Make your own combinations, and change up the broccolini for thin-sliced zucchini, and raspberries or blackberries instead of blueberries. Use any dark leafy greens that you like :)
  • Add In's:  Thinly sliced and warmed chicken breast or grilled shrimp make a satisfying addition to this salad.
  • Same with adding cooked grains like quinoa
  • Make it a Party:  This recipe is easy to scale up for more people.  For a large gathering, I set out two large platters and serve the dressing on the side.
  • Meal prep or make it in advance: You can prep all these ingredients and store them separately in the refrigerator until you're ready to assemble. These can be done as a meal prep too, just keep the dressing separate in both cases until you're ready to eat.
  • Buy Organic: I always buy organic if it's available.
