  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice

Preparation

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add all the salad ingredients together and gently toss until combined.
  2. Next, add all the dressing ingredients to a jar and use an immersion blender (alternatively, place all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth and silky!)
  3. When ready, pour the dressing over the salad to preference and carefully toss. (Reserve the remaining dresser in an air-tight container to use later.)
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
