Christmas Tree Salad – Healthy Weight Loss Food Recipe For Happy New Year Party

Ingredients:

makes about 6-7 cups

  • 1 bunch organic swiss chard (red or green will work) – rinsed well + sliced into thin ribbons
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds (about the amount from from 1 medium pomegranate)
  • 3/4 cup frozen red globe grapes, sliced*
  • 2 satsuma mandarin oranges, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chopped pecans, raw
  • 2 Tbsp dried cranberries (or another dried fruit like dried golden raisins or even chopped dates!) – organic
  • 1 small honeycrisp apple, organic – chopped
  • star topper: 1 slice of toast (I used sprouted grain)

*tip: those frozen grapes help to keep the salad nice and cool for you and your holiday guests! I simply freeze the grapes, then right before I slice and toss with the salad, I run them under warm to hot water to quickly “thaw” the outside layer. This washes off any ice crystals too. It also seems to easily release lots of sweet grape flavor!

Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup, grade B
  • 1/3 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp fine black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp coriander
  • a pinch of cayenne (optional, but warms up things nicely)
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • a few pinches of satsuma orange zest
