Fall Marinated Bitter Greens

by Nourish Coaches

The bitter flavor of greens can be intimidating and keep them off our plate. We suggest you don’t ignore them though. Adding a yummy dressing that blends the acidity of apple cider vinegar with the sweet of maple syrup, helps cut that bitter flavor = More bitter greens please!

Why we want to eat bitter greens in the fall:

Not only are bitter greens nutrient dense and full of antioxidants but they are also used as a prebiotic for vital gut microbiome health. Because bitter greens are packed with fiber, they also lend a hand to satiety, digestive ease and absorption of nutrients.

Choose a mix of fall bitter greens: 4-5 cups

  • arugula
  • watercress
  • endive
  • radicchio
  • romaine


  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or avocado oil
  • 3 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon
  • 1 teaspoon Tamari

Whisk together OR shake ingredients in a glass jar till mixed well.

Pour marinade over greens, toss and let marinate for 10 minutes before serving.
