Today, I share a simple, straight forward Detox Salad that is refreshing, light and clean.It is full of vitamins and minerals to give the body an extra boost. It is also great because leafy greens are diuretic in nature and can help expel added water weight. Greens also help to bring balance to the system by adjusting pH, they also help eliminate any toxins that may be present and are loaded with vitamins that we tend to lack through the winter months.
Detox Salad Recipe
- 4 cups any greens or baby lettuce
- 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
- 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
- 1 c. dandelion greens
-1/4 c. shredded beets, marinated, if desired
-1/2 apple, shredded
-1/4 cup walnuts, chopped, optional
-1/4 c. raisins, optional
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 c Stevia, coconut nectar or honey to taste
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, diced
-1/2 tsp. ginger
-4 drizzles of flax oil or extra virgin olive oil (optional)
-4 drizzles of your apple cider or coconut vinegar
-1/2 tsp. Bragg’s Kelp seasoning
-1/4 tsp. turmeric
-salt and pepper, herbs like rosemary, to taste
Arrange the greens on a plate and arrange the carrots, apples and sprouts in circular piles along the top of the plate like a rainbow – I like it all jumbled up but you can make it as you choose. Then, mix the dressing ingredients and drizzle on top.
1 T apple cider or coconut vinegar (or more to taste, for sweetness)
Use the food processor, mandoline or shredder, or spiralizer to slice the beets and onions to desired shape. Pour into a bowl.
Add apple cider vinegar and mix well. The longer it sits, the softer they’ll be!
