It’s okay to eat some especial treats, but you don’t have to stuff your face with unhealthy foods to enjoy the holidays, there are so many healthy and tasty recipes you can make! Start your Christmas meal with a healthy salad, that way you’ll nourish your body with good food and you’ll make better choices.

Vegan Christmas Salad
This vegan Christmas salad is unbelievable! It’s delicious, super easy to make and perfect for especial occasions.
- Prep Time: 15 mins
- Total Time: 15 mins
- Yield: 4
- 6 handfuls of leafy greens (I used 4 handfuls of lollo rosso lettuce and 2 handfuls of curly endives)
- 1/2 pomegranate
- 1 diced red apple
- 2 chopped tangerines
- 1/2 julienned red onion
- 8 chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (60 g)
For the salad dressing:
- 4 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Place all the ingredients in a large bowl.
- To make the salad dressing you just need to blend all the ingredients in a blender. You can also mix them in a bowl, using a knife, but I prefer to blend them.
- Serve the salad with the dressing. Add the dressing just before eating the salad or the leafy greens will go soggy.
