    Brain Food: Sardine Avocado Citrus Salad

  • Recipe Description:

    This is an awesome little salad that comes together quickly and easily scales for just one to a crowd. The oily sardines are cut by the citrus and the avocado adds a nice creamy factor. To make the salad feel more like a dinner menu item I saute an onion and at the very end add the sardines to heat them up. Then I use the sardine oil, plus a little balsamic vinegar and sherry to make a simple dressing. That's it. All of 15 minutes and you're ready to eat.

    Recipe Instructions:

    Saute the onions or leeks in the tablespoon of fat. Add a little salt and pepper to taste, but go easy on the salt as the sardines are naturally salty too.

    While the onions are sauteing open the sardine tins. Drain the olive oil into a small bowl. When the onions are done turn off the burner and set the sardines into the pan so they can heat up a bit. You want the sardines whole, so don't stir them in.

    To make the salad dressing mix the oil from the sardines with half a tablespoon of each sherry and balsamic vinegar. Combine with a fork or whisk.

    Place 3 cups of greens onto each dinner plate. Add the avocado and orange on top. Divide the sauteed onion/leeks between each plate and top with the sardines.

    Serve with the dressing on the side.
