Don’t be surprised if my site has a new name – carroton.com! It goes with my reddish hair, too, carrots, ya know?
Today, I share a simple, straight forward Detox Salad that is full of vitamins and minerals to give the body an extra boost. The 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.
– 4 c. any greens or baby lettuce
– 1/2 c. carrots, shredded
– 1/2 c. alfalfa sprouts
– 1 c. dandelion greens
-1/4 c. shredded beets, marinated, if desired
-1/2 apple, shredded
-1/4 c. walnuts, chopped, optional
-1/4 c. raisins, optional
– juice of 1 lemon
– 1/4 c Stevia, coconut nectar or honey to taste
– 1 tsp. 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.
Then, mix the dressing by hand, or in a personal blender, and drizzle on top.
1 T apple cider or coconut vinegar (or more to taste, for sweetness)
Use the food processor, mandolin 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.
Word of the Day – zanahoria – carrot
