Looking for a quick salad made of fresh, whole foods that actually helps detox your body?!?! Well then, keep reading because I've got ya' covered!
This recipe is an adaptation of the Detox Salad from Whole Foods Market. It's a copycat version that is much cheaper to make and tastes pretty darn good. And more importantly, it works to detoxify your body! I usually make a batch and keep eating it with lunch or dinner for a few days, or you can make it for a dinner party, as it plays great as a side dish. Think of it as a coleslaw without all the heavy mayo or sugar! Just light, refreshing, and healthy ingredients.
- 2 large heads of broccoli
- 2 1/2 cups of roughly chopped cauliflower
- 3 large carrots, chopped to fit into the processor
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 cup dried currants
- 3/4 cup chopped parsley
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Put broccoli in a food processor and pulse down to rough cut (not fine) pieces. Scrape out of processor into a large bowl. Do the same with the cauliflower and carrots and add to your broccoli and mix well.
Add your pumpkin & sunflower seeds, and raisins & currants and give it a good stir.
Next, add your lemon and parsley and mix well.
Add in your salt and pepper and mix everything together. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container. When stored properly, this salad will last in the refrigerator for days. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Cheers, and here's to your health! Enjoy!
