With its soft savoury flavour, sage has been prized for millennia for its health benefits. Its binomial name Salvia officinalis is derived from the Latin ‘Salvere’ for “to be saved”. High in vitamin K and rosmarinic acid, sage is now understood to reduce inflammatory responses within the body. This is great for reducing the signs of aging and promoting general good health. This is also a particularly delicious salad.

Recipe

  1. On a medium heat, gently fry the sage leaves until they begin to sizzle and the macadamia oil becomes infused with the oils and flavours from the sage. Set to one side and allow to cool.
  2. Toast the almonds and pumpkin seeds in some fresh macadamia oil until they have begun to brown off.
  3. Whisk the lemon juice and sage infused oil with your salt and pepper.
  4. In a large serving bowl mix all the salad leaves and herbs together. Lightly toss with your seeds, chilli flakes and infused oil. Serve immediately.
