Fennel, Peppers, and Arugula Salad with Peaches’ Fave Dressing

image

Hi there everyone, back at it again. I made this due to my co-worker’s special request, so let me walk you through the ingredients. Check out the picture below…

As you can see, you need a spiralizer for the long carrot. Not only does it give  an aesthetic appeal, but it makes the carrots more chewable.

Let’s start going green…

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 container of Wild Arugula (washed and spinned on salad spinner when ready to serve)

1 small fennel bulb, washed, trimmed and sliced thinly and a sprinkle of Goji Berries for color

Colored bell peppers: green, red, orange, yellow (don’t slice early as they sweat, slice into bite size)

1 long carrot, spiralized just like in the picture below: You have to keep turning the carrot around  inside the spiralizer until they come out in spiral shapes. You can make a vegetarian zucchini spaghetti using this wonderful kitchen gadget; I got mine from Amazon. It’s a must-have in your kitchen.

Place all the sliced vegetables on a huge salad bowl, then add the washed and spinned/dried Arugula, mix gently but well and lastly a sprinkle of Goji Berries.

 

FOR THE SALAD DRESSING:

1/3 cup of Modena balsamic vinegar

1 cup of Chosen Foods 100% avocado oil or Filippo Berio olive oil

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. Grey Poupon Dijon mustard

1 tsp. sesame seeds

1-2 tsp. grated onion

1 tsp. poppy seeds (optional)

 

PROCEDURE:

1. In a huge bowl, pour balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt, grated red onion, and mustard sauce.

2. With a handheld blender, whisk the mixture. Then with the blender running, pour the oil into the mixture gradually until you finish the whole cup of the oil, turn off the blender then add the sesame and poppy seeds, mix well. Just see the next picture.

3. Pour the homemade salad dressing into a  nice clear glass. Put dressing only on the amount of salad you want to eat so the salad doesn’t wilt.

Here’s a salad that you just made from ingredients that you can actually pronounce, with no harmful additives or any preservatives.Speaking of preservatives,since this dressing has none, you have to finish the dressing immediately in a few days. Okay?

-Peaches, Healthy and Masarap!
