  • 1 medium red onion, sliced into about ¼ inch pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado or olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt or sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ⅔ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup orange juice (1 orange)
  • 8 ounces of your favorite greens

Optional: 2 scoops Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder

Optional toppings:

  • ¼ cup parmesan/feta cheese
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts/pecans
  • 1 chopped apple/pear
  • Pomegranate seeds/dried cranberries/dried cherries


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Toss sliced onions with olive oil, salt, and cayenne pepper. Spread onions onto a baking sheet (can line with parchment paper to prevent sticking). Roast for about 15 minutes, or until desired level of doneness is reached.
  2. While onions roast, in a small saucepan, gently boil vinegar and orange juice until reduced by ½ (about 11 minutes). Whisk in collagens powder, if using.
  3. Serve by placing roasted onions and desired toppings on top of a bed of lettuce and drizzling with the orange juice dressing. Enjoy!

Ingredient Highlights

Avocado oil supports heart and eye health and neutralizes free radicals that can contribute to heart disease and diabetes.  

Real balsamic vinegar is an aromatic, thick, dark, syrupy, aged type of vinegar, made from the reduction of cooked grapes. Lower-priced brands, like those found in most grocery stores, are often made with cheap wine vinegar mixed with corn syrup, flavoring, and caramel coloring.  

Cayenne pepper is a good source of beta carotene and antioxidants that support the immune system. The key compound in cayenne called capsaicin is also cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, helps prevent kidney stones and speed up metabolism and has beneficial effects on the GI system. 

Onions  are nutrient-dense, meaning they’re low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C, B, and potassium. The flavanoids are concentrated in the outer layers, so try to remove as few layers as possible when peeling. 

One cup of fresh squeezed orange juice has 124 mg of vitamin C and 21 grams of natural sugar. It also contains 50% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. 

With the Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens in this recipe, you not only get 5 different types of collagen, but also camu camu, acerola cherry, horsetail extract (silica), and zinc gluconate to ensure your body can actually USE the collagen you’re taking.
