RAW RECIPE: Orange Pomegranate Salad With Mango Chia Dressing

orange pomegranate salad

This colorful summer salad gets big points in my book. Not only is it delicious and refreshing on these hot days but its so damn pretty too! On top of everything else it gets an extra punch with the addition of chia seeds which are an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium; that’s a long list for a little seed!

THE SALAD

4 cups romaine lettuce, torn

2 oranges, sectioned

1 cup pomegranate seeds

2 kiwis, sliced

3/4  cup chopped pecans

In a bowl mix together all ingredients. Toss thoroughly and pour dressing on top. (Yes, it’s that easy; I told you raw food doesn’t have to be an arduous affair!)

MANGO CHIA DRESSING

Juice of two oranges

1 ripe mango, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chia seeds

Put the orange juice and mango in a blender and blend . Add olive oil. Blend well. Stir in chia seeds.

Ready!
