Sweet and Tangy salad with honey mustard vinaigrette December 4, 2012

Filed under: GAPS,Recipes — Lauren @ 2:09 pm

My husband and I have been having a large salad almost every day for lunch. Sometimes we have a cup of soup or a side of chicken salad along with it, other times just make sure its chock full, so we aren’t hungry soon after ;o)

I usually make a large salad at the beginning of the week and then just scoop it out when its lunch time.

Little prep- very versatile- super yummy.

Since I have been eating salads almost every day for lunch for the last year or so, I am actually to the point where I CRAVE them. If it’s been a day or two of not having one, it truly sounds like the most fulfilling thing in the world!!

The combinations are endless….heres to a sweet and tangy salad:


Spinach and romaine

Purple cabbage


Carrots- shredded

Celery- chopped

1 apple- chopped

1 Clementine

Dried cherries (or raisins)

Raw cheese-diced

Sunflower/pumpkin seeds



Honey-mustard vinaigrette

½ C + Extra-virgin olive oil

1-2 T ground mustard

1 t sea salt

2-3 T raw apple cider vinegar

Ground pepper

1-2 T raw honey
