Mixed Salad with Snow Pear and Walnuts

One of the nicest ways to indulge in raw food is to toss together crispy lettuces in a large bowl. Add fruits and nuts. Dress with a simple dressing, and voilà! A whole, nutritious meal is ready in no time.



Here is the list of ingredients I used:

For the salad
  • young Romana lettuce
  • iceberg lettuce
  • radicchio
  • baby kale
  • overland cress
  • 2 spring onions
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 chopped raw walnuts (soaked in water overnight)
  • 1/2 snow pear, sliced into thin slices

For the dressing
  • 1/3 virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey (I used a very robust pomegranate blossom honey)
  • 1/3 tsp crushed hot pepper
  • 1/3 tsp pink Himalaya salt

Method:
  • Clean and wash the lettuces. Arrange on individual platters or toss into a large salad bowl.
  • Chiffonade or chop the mint leaves. Cut spring onions into thin slices. Sprinkle both ingredients over the salad.
  • In a small bowl whisk the dressing and pour it over the salad. 
  • Garnish with snow pear slices and walnuts. Ready!

As always, enjoy in good company!
