For Nut Free: Omit chopped almonds. Pumpkin seeds are a great alternative for added crunch.
For AIP: Omit flax seed oil and chopped almonds. Use extra olive oil, or avocado oil instead. Be careful with fruit preserves, as many are not compliant. If needed, use extra fresh blackberries.
1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons all-fruit blackberry preserves
2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper (to taste)
4 ounces broccoli sprouts
6 cups arugula (about 3 ounces)
1 cup cubed papaya
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen and thawed)
- In a small bowl, combine grapefruit juice, blackberry preserves, flaxseed oil, and olive oil. Whisk together until well blended and slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine broccoli sprouts, arugula, papaya, and almonds; toss with just enough dressing to lightly coat. Refrigerate remaining dressing.
- Divide greens among four serving plates. Top with blackberries and serve.
