  • one blood orange thinly sliced 
  • about 10 slices of cucumber

for the vinaigrette

  • one juice of a meyer lemon
  • dash of balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • tablespoon of orange juice
  • tablespoon of olive oil 
  • teaspoon of honey 
Method:

  1. chop the salad vegetables, grate carrot and add to a plate
  2. mix the ingredients of the vinaigrette and drizzle over the top
  3. enjoy 



Have a wonderful weekend everyone :-)
