This salad has it all.
Healthy green shit, that your mom’s always telling you to eat. Crunchy almonds full of calcium and all kinds of other goodness. Sweet and juicy citrusy orange segments. Then there’s the background amazingness: toasted sesame oil, vinegar, fresh ginger and the sharpness of just a little green onion. Everything about this salad screams FUCK YES TO THE JOY OF LIFE!
So next time you’re sitting on your terrace in the sunshine, lazily leafing through your cookbook trying to figure out what to make for dinner, then make sure you include this juicier than life motherfucker. Your body will thank you and so will your soul.
You can find joy and citrus salad on page 96 of the Thug Kitchen Party Grub book, and best of all, though it’s meant for 4 – 6 people, it makes a mean leftover the next day if there’s only 2-3 of you eating. The juices have had time to really flow, marinate and party overnight to create a salad taste-bomb to explode your taste buds’ minds. (Yes, your taste buds have minds too. It’s a scientific fact. Just ask your friendly “scientist” at the psych ward. You know the one. The one with the lab coat and fluffy bunny slippers.)
