Sweetheart of a Salad
Packed with seasonal produce, this salad tastes and looks great. I recently bought Cocktail Grapefruits and they are very sweet and delicious but smaller so use 2 if you can find them.
8 cups spinach, washed and dried
1 large pink or white grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sweetener
1 teaspoon tamari
3 tablespoons vegetable stock or water
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place spinach in a bowl or separate and divide among 4 individual plates. Arrange grapefruit slices and avocado over spinach.
To make dressing, pour 2 tablespoons sesame seeds into a blender. Grind until they are powder. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the reserved teaspoon of sesame seeds) and blend. Pour over salad. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
