Great Recipe for High Blood Pressure

I chanced upon this great recipe for high blood pressure. I will definitely benefit from this because I have HBP. Check it out and try it for yourself. I will probably head to the nearest market after I post this. ;)

Mixed Lettuce, Fennel and Orange Salad 
with Black Olive Vinaigrette

  • 1 tablespoon(s) red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Dijon mustard
  • 2 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) Kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 medium navel or Valencia oranges
  • 10 cup(s) mixed lettuces, such as chicory, radicchio, and lettuce
  • 2 head(s) Belgian endive, sliced
  • 2 bulb(s) fennel, trimmed and sliced
  1. To prepare vinaigrette: Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil. Stir in olives and parsley.
  2. To prepare salad: Using a sharp knife, remove peel and white pith from oranges. Quarter the oranges; slice pieces crosswise.
  3. Just before serving, combine lettuces, endive, fennel, and the orange slices in a large bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat well.
