Free Healthy Recipe - Green salad with Grapefruit and Coriander dressing

Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Low fat, Wheat Free

There's a glut of citrus fruit this year and grapefruits, so often excruciatingly tart, are sweet, juicy and delicious. Stored in the fridge, grapefruit will keep for up to 5 weeks but to enjoy its full flavour should be eaten at room temperature.

Ingredients
6 large handfuls mixed greens
1 tbsp vinegar
¼ bunch coriander leaves, finely chopped
3 coriander roots minced
Method

Peel the grapefruit, remove the pith and cut it into segments. Collect any remaining juice to use in the dressing. ( 1 tbs is sufficient) Combine the dressing ingredients and the grapefruit juice. Arrange the leaves on a platter and lay the grapefruit slices on top. Drizzle with dressing and serve.

Note : Grapefruit once believed to have fat burning qualities and is said to be good for reducing high blood pressure, toxic overload and circulatory problems and intestinal worms.
