Vitamin C Salad

During the winter according to Ayurvedic traditions our body gravitates more towards warm, spicy and cooked foods to support our dry, cool winter digestion. This is one reason to think of incorporating lightly cooked ingredients to your salads, and also not needing to serve them ice cold but better at room temperature.


Here is one of my favourite winter salad combinations:


Endive

Radicchio

Orange, peeled, in wedges

Grapefruit, peeled, in wedges

Mint leaves

Pomegranate seeds

Walnuts, crushed

Radish, finely sliced

Olive Oil

Sea Salt

Lemon juice


Throw all the ingredients except the olive oil, sea salt + lemon juice artfully into a bowl or plate individually as desired. Drizzle + sprinkle the remaining ingredients on top. Or sauté the endive gently in olive oil + salt first, cool slightly before combining with the remaining ingredients. Enjoy.


This salad is a powerhouse of superfoods, antioxidants, vitamin C, and healthy fats.
