“Here's my purple-themed fruit salad creation. Now I have to be honest, as I was compiling my list of purple fruits and ingredients to add to this salad, I was having some serious doubts on what the flavor would be. But I was pleasantly surprised by the complex sweet-bitter-tangy flavor of this salad! Purple Ingredients. Bold Flavors. This Purple Power salad has sweet tart black grapes, succulent purple or black plums, chewy goji berries, carmalized dried fig slivers, crunchy bitter raddicio shreds, thinly sliced red onion rounds, black sesame seeds and a squeeze of Meyer lemon juice to bring the flavors to ZING! Then to counteract the acidic ingredients and smooth the tart edges of flavor, I've added a tablespoon of veganaise OR plain soy yogurt. Power Lunch. Eat this salad alone on top of a giant pile of mixed greens. Nutrient dense and incredibly energy-infusing. As a lunchtime feast, this salad really awakens your senses and perks up your mood. This salad is rich in antioxidants. Power Purple says it all. Sweet grapes, figs and plums provide a quick energy boost to your day . Mother Nature's caffeine.”
