on miners lettuce & calendula buds
We made a salad for some friends last night using Vigour & Vitalities Activated Watermelon Seed Spread. It’s very similar to Tahini in it’s strength so just use a bit and add as needed.
1 tsp Watermelon Seed Spread
4 tbsp Olive oil (I used an outstanding Marlborough extra virgin made by Oriwa)
4 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
1 tbsp Mirin (sushi vinegar)
2 tsp ROAR coconut sugar (I find this necessary to balance the bitter notes)
a pinch of salt and pepper
a head of miners lettuce which grows wild here in Otago
a couple of calendula buds for colour
Mix up the ingredients well with a fork to get everything well emulsified, add salt or sugar to taste.
