Raspberry Grapefruit Salad

Raspberry Grapefruit Salad

Here is a very simple and very delicious salad. As I have said before my favorite breakfast food is salad. I of course had this as my breakfast and it was wonderful. I just love how the simple dressing turned out. I used this same dressing on my Zucchinni Noodle Salad recipe that I will be posting next!!

Raspberry Grapefruit
Organic romaine, cut into thin strips
1 large grapefruit, peeled, seeded and diced
1 handful of organic raspberries
1 T Hemp seeds
1 T raw sesame seeds
Plate the lettuce and top with the grapefruit, raspberries, and seeds. Drizzle on some Balsamic Dijon Dressing. Enjoy!

Balsamic Dijon Dressing

1/2 C First cold pressed EVOO
1/4 C Balsamic vinegar
2 T raw honey or real Maple Syrup
1 T organic Dijon mustard
2 tsp dried onion flakes
pinch of sea salt
pinch of black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well.
Keeps in refrigerator for 4 weeks. Shake well before each use. Allow to sit at room temp for at least 30 min prior to using so honey and oils can liquefy.

~JMJ~Today I am grateful for warm little ones in my bed. We are going through a cold front right now and down here in SW FL we are freezing at 50 degrees. We had 3 of the 5 kids pile in our bed this morning saying, "I'm cold!! I need to put on some sweat pants!" Too funny considering just last week we were complaining how hot it was.
