Season's Greetings Salad

This salad is so much more than just quick and easy; it’s also delicious, and nutritious! Crisp green lettuce, crunchy nuts, sweet red peppers and pomegranate bursting with flavor – this is the holiday season salad! Make it for that special dinner party or for a simple salad to help get you through the hectic holiday hoopla.

Ingredients:

Green Leaf Lettuce (organic)
Sweet Red Peppers (organic)
Pomegranate (organic)
Walnuts (organic)

Dressing:
Tahini (about 1 Tbs.)
Lime Juice from 2 limes
Olive Oil
Water
Chili Powder
Sea Salt

Note: Quantities depend on number of people you are serving and portion sizes

Directions:

  1. Rinse lettuce leaves and remove excess water; cut leaves with a knife, vertically and horizontally, into bite-size pieces and throw into large bowl.
  2. Rinse the pepper(s), dice and throw into the bowl.
  3. Rinse pomegranate and empty out the seeds into the bowl (If you have never done this before, you can use this instructional video which shows you how).
  4. Toss the 3 ingredients together and sprinkle with a generous amounts of walnut pieces.
  5. To make the dressing, squeeze the juice of 2 limes in a cup or bowl; add in a heaping tablespoonful of tahini and stir well (it will seem watery at first, but then go thick again).
  6. Sprinkle in some chili powder and sea salt.
  7. Pour in a bit of olive oil and water to make a runny consistency; stir mixture really well (can also be mixed in a blender); taste and add a bit more chili powder as desired.

Amazing Antioxidants

Another study adds to the evidence that a diet rich in fruit and vegetables can guard against stroke. A large-scale Swedish survey found that women whose diet was high in antioxidants had a lower risk of stroke — even if they already had heart disease.

Antioxidants are compounds that combat free radicals in the body and reduce inflammation that can lead to disease. They are found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and tea.

The study, published in the medical journal Stroke, looked at how many of these foods middle-aged and elderly women regularly ate — and whether they had a stroke. Women who had no cardiovascular disease at the start of the study and ate the most fruit and vegetables had a 17% lower risk of any kind of stroke. Women with heart disease who consumed the most antioxidants had a 57% lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke.

Holiday Compassion

The winter holidays are an especially important time to bring compassion to the table! This season, we've launched a billboard campaign throughout December with five postings in Atlanta. The friendly billboards direct viewers to our resource center, LiveVegan.org. The site features a Vegan Holiday Menu and a Guide to Enjoying Compassionate Holidays with Friends & Family.

Do you want to help spread compassion? Donate towards our billboard campaign. A generous gift of $500 will pay for a full billboard, and smaller donations can be pooled.

Visit www.farmusa.org/donate and mention "holiday billboard" in the comment box!
