Date and Orange Garden Salad Recipe

I would love to share this amazing salad with you which I discovered while on holiday in France. I was served this salad as an entree for lunch at a little restaurant in Paris. It is so easy, delicious and healthy, I just had to make the salad myself!

What makes this salad so awesome?

– The dates combined with the salad make it so tasty, you don’t even need salad dressing

– Its a great way to eat your spinach in a tasty way

– The acidity in the orange keeps it fresh for longer

– So easy to make with 6 healthy ingredients

Ingredients:

– Leafy Greens (lettuce, mixed salad leaves or preferably baby spinach leaves)

– Cucumber (sliced and halved)

– Tomato (diced) / Cherry tomatoes (halved)

– Dates (sliced)

– Oranges / Mandarins

– Avocado (diced)

How do I make this awesome Salad?

Combine all of the ingredients above in whatever quantity you wish. Depending on what ingredients I have at the time, I don’t always use avocado or cucumber, however the dates and oranges or mandarins are a must for this recipe! I actually used a mandarin and an orange in the salad featured in this pic.

Some other great additions to this salad that I love are diced pecan nuts or some sunflower seeds lightly fried in some oil.
