Pink Grapefruit, Avocado, Hazelnut & Fig Salad

This is my last post for 2013, and I wanted to end this year on a healthy note. With a salad thats fresh, zingy, tangy, crunchy, creamy, sweet, filling and more than anything … thanks to the post I’ve just had a fabulous lunch – feels good specially after the last couple of days of binging on all things sinful. Sometimes, I’m glad I blog, because just sometimes, I’m not sure, If I blog because I cook fairly well, or I make things well for the blog. Either ways … We end up with good food on the table, and thats most important. Nothing beats a homemade meal, prepared with love and best of ingredients. And thats what I want to encourage all of you to do …. make it a point this coming year, you take out time for yourself and your family, eat well, cook more often, eat healthy, be happy, stay fit, and most of all … always keep room for dessert.

Ingredients
Salad leaves – butter / or any you like
Kale – leaves picked out and finely sliced – I tucked in a few as I had some lying around. You could substitute with rocket too.
Pink grapefruit – cut and segment
Figs – finely sliced
Avocado – cubed
Handful of toasted Hazelnuts
Sage – few leaves sliced finely
Dressing
juice of 1 Orange
3-4 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 heaped teaspoon of Homemade Wholegrain Mustard
salt to taste
crushed pepper

Tear the salad leaves roughly. Add the kale + sage and toss. Now place the grapefruit, figs and avocados evenly all over and throw over the nuts.
For the dressing, just mix all the ingredients well, and pour over the salad. Serve immediately.

One of the most underrated features of good salads is how open to a variety of textures and flavors they are. You have nailed it with this one. And the colors in it are pretty enough to make it a centerpiece!
