The Livity Mango Salad is everything you need during mango season. It’s so easy, tasty, and refreshing. I buy the fresh young coconuts at the Asian market for the fresh meat. You can substitute unsweetened, organic coconut flakes.

Salade Livity à la mangue

Cette salade est vite devenue mon assiette préférée. Quelle fraîcheur! Je la mange tous les jours ces temps-ci (oui, je sais, je suis un peu extrémiste). J’achète des jeunes coconuts frais pour en extraire la pulpe, pour une saveur éclatante. Vous pouvez, par contre, utiliser des flocons organiques, sans sucre.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 mangue, pelée et coupée en dés
  • Chair d’un 1/2 jeune coconut frais, coupée en fine lamelles
  • 1 avocat, pelé et coupé en dés
  • 1 pamplemousse, coupé en segments, avec le jus
  • 1 oignon vert, émincé
  • 2 c. à soupe de graines de citrouille crues
  • 1 bout de gingembre frais (environ 1 po.), émincé
  • 1 petite poignée de coriandre fraîche, émincée
  • Sel noir

Instructions

Dans un moyen bol à mélanger, déposer les cubes de mangue, le coconut et l’avocat. Ajouter les segments de pamplemousse et le jus (je défais les segments juste au-dessus du bol à mélanger, récupérant facilement tout le jus). Ajouter l’oignon vert, les graines de citrouille, le gingembre et la coriandre  fraîche. Bien mélanger avec les mains. Servir avec une pincée de sel noir.

Shaved Fennel, Avocado, and Grapefruit Salad

  • Author: livitygardens
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x
  • Method: Raw

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 fennel bulbs, shaved on a mandolin or cut as thin as you can (about 2 cups)
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/8 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • Pinch of black salt (or coarse sea salt)

Instructions

Place the shaved fennel on a serving platter. Cut the avocado in small cubes and place on top of the fennel. Cut the grapefruit into segments, over a bowl, in order to keep the juice (I do this directly on top of the serving platter, sprinkling the avocado at the same time to preserve their color). Add the grapefruit segments to the platter. Drizzle with the grapefruit juice, sprinkle with red chili flakes and black salt. Eat.

Maple and Grapefruit Caramelized Carrots

Maple and Grapefruit Caramelized Carrots

It’s carrot time and this Maple and Grapefruit Caramelized Carrots recipe is a great way to enjoy the season. At the farmers market, you’ll find many varieties, many colors, all sorts of shapes, but most importantly, the freshest taste! When in season and fresh, carrots don’t need much to be fabulous. And since we have plenty of grapefruits around here right now, I figured that grapefruit juice would be the perfect balance to my maple syrup in this decadent glaze. Beware, you’ll seriously lick the glaze off your plate.

Maple and Grapefruit Caramelized Carrots

  • Author: Karine K
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 tablespoons butter (I love Miyoko’s!)
  • 1 bunch market-fresh carrots
  • 1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme sprigs

Instructions

In a large cast iron skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, lower the heat to medium, season with sea salt and pepper, and let cook, tossing often, for approximately 6-7 minutes, depending on the size and shape of your carrots. The goal here is to soften the carrots.

Add the grapefruit juice and the maple syrup. Toss well so all the carrots are coated. Cook until the liquid turns into a glaze, about 15 minutes. Coat the carrots with the glaze using a spoon while cooking. Remove to a serving platter, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs and a small pinch of sea salt, and serve immediately.
