Being somewhat resourceful in the kitchen, I subbed in some orange juice, mixed up the salad toppings and created something new, which the Sprouts named Orange-alicious Salad. The dressing is really light, but it's (for me, at least) just enough to moisten up the greens and keep me from feeling like I'm missing something. If you want it totally fat free, you can make it without the cashews, but they really do help emulsify it.
Orange-alicious Salad Dressing
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 apple, seeded, cored and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons raw, unsalted cashews
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
If you have extra time on your hands, soak the cashews in warm water for 5-10 minutes, then drain. If not, just move ahead with putting all ingredients in a blender or food processor until well combined and creamy.
Posting a recipe for the salad just seems silly. It's greens topped with clementine slices, blueberries and toasted almonds. Voila.
