SG Organic is not only about fruits & vegetables anymore. We are working hard to make sure we can improve both our product ranges and with more lifestyle oriented changes, a new shop front and even a blog in the making! We are growing steadily and we would love for you to grow with us!


A new home for SG Organic
Our largest change for the first part of this year will be our new face outward to you guys. We have taken all the feedback we have gotten from our customers and are working hard to create a much more customer friendly shop that makes your shopping experience as easy and fun as possible.

When our new shop opens up it will be easier for you to spend your stored credit, find what you are looking for, see new products and much easier for you to take advantage of our standing order system as well!

We are even updating our delivery windows! A new, easier system will help you choose your delivery window, and new timings will help ensure that your order arrives when you are at home. Ready for you to cook and prepare for your lunches, dinners and juices for the next week.

Don’t fear the shift however! We will make sure to keep you informed about all the little changes to make it as easy as possible to transition to our new page. Keep an eye on our page, our social media as well as these emails from us to learn more about our new webpage.

Shop on the go!
Singapore is a connected city. And we want to connect with you. To make this easier we are slowly but surely working on an app to help you read, buy and grow with us.

The app will be ready at the end of March and will feature a lot of flash sales and special promotions for all of you. The new app will also have special offers that will only be available on the app. So stay tuned for more news about this exiting change and get ready to shop organic on the go!

Changes but still quality
All of our changes are aimed at improving the quality of the service we are providing for you. We are updating our boxes, bringing in new products and even having more flash sales. But all of this has just one aim: To make your healthy lifestyle a fun and rewarding one.

Spring salad with Fennel & Lemon Vinaigrette

SONY DSC

For the salad:
1 Cucumber
1 Red Capsicum
1 Head lettuce
1 pineapple
1 Zucchini
For the vinaigrette:
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
½ cup of fennel fronds
½ lemon juice
½ tsp of white pepper

You can add any other fruits or veggies you wish to your salad as well, but try to keep it light as the freshness might not work very well with items such as kumera etc. Add a pinch of lemon zest to the vinaigrette for that little something extra.

This was another recipe that came into being as a result of throwing away too many fennel fronds. It is a fresh, lovely salad with a, even fresher, light vinaigrette that works great with light spring salads of this type.

Start by chopping, combining and cooling down the salad in the fridge to keep it fresh and ready to serve. The salad can also be made a good while after the vinaigrette, as the vinaigrette needs to settle a bit before being served.

As for the vinaigrette you want to first make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature before starting, as the mixture already can separate quite easily and the cold makes this more likely to happen often. Mix the ingredients together and either run them through the blender to mix the oil with the vinegar or put them in a sealed bottle or jar and shake well.

Once you have managed to blend the mixture together leave it for 1-3 hours before serving to allow the taste of the fennel and lemon to mingle with the vinegar and oil. Make sure you do not refrigerate it as the cold will just cause separation instead of allowing the different flavours to mix. Shake well and sprinkle a bit on your salad right before eating. Enjoy!

Tip: If you wish to test your vinaigrette before serving, tear off a small piece of lettuce and dip in the mixture. It gives a better idea of how the mixture will taste on the salad than just testing it bare.
