CITRUS POMEGRANATE SALAD | 25 MIN | HAPPINESS BOOSTER


This salad just screams happiness.
And we mean that literately because one of the main ingredients are oranges (or any other citrus fruit that you prefer). Did you know that all citrus fruits release Serotonin to the brain? Serotonin is responsible for the feeling of happiness! Just the smell of oranges can put you in a happy mood. This salad is full of it and we didn’t even start to talk about the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants in all the other amazing ingredients! So we are not joking when we say that this salad screams happiness.

Most of the time when our Serotonin levels are low we grave for sugary or salty treats to comfort our soul but we guarantee that taking the time to treat yourself to this beautiful picture will be a great reward after a long day and is a thousand times more fulfilling than a fatty burger.
So what do you need?

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 blood oranges ( grapefruit, regular oranges or a combo is a nice twist too)
  • 2 fennels  in thin slices
  • 1 shallot in thin slices 
  • 2-3 hands or rucola salad
  • 2 ripe plums in slices
  • 2-3 eat spoons of slices parsley
  • 2-3 eat spoons of pomegranate seeds

    Peel the oranges and remove the white layer that covers the orange parts. The shiny, juicy inside is the result. Take all the ingredients above and mix them into a large bowl.

 

DRESSING

  • 1/2 teaspoon basaltic vinegar
  • 1 eating spoon of red wine vinegar
  • 60 ml extra virgine olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • pepper and salt 

    Take a small bowl and pour the olive oil inside. Mix it with the red wine vinegar and herbs with the help of a fork. Now pour the mixture over the salad and finish it off with a drizzle of the balsamic vinegar.

TOPPING

  • cottage cheese
  • a handful of crushed almonds
  • a handful of dried cranberries (fresh sour-berries are also an option)To complete the party create a mixture or crushed almonds, cranberries and cottage cheese. Create little sticky balls with your fingers and spread them over the salad.
