This is the Aston Martin of detox salads. The Novak Djokovic, Warren Buffet, the Barry Bonds, the James Brown, the Paul Rudd (what?) of detox salads.

What did you do last night? You could probably use a detox.

A few months ago, I fell ass-over-teakettle for this Detox Salad with Lemon Dressing from Homemade Levity and have revisited it on numerous occasions. I’ve shown you detox-eriffic recipes a-plenty, but this one pretty much takes the cake (takes the kale?) when it comes to cleaning out the cobwebs.

How to Make The Ultimate Detox Salad:

The componentry of this salad has a stellar nutrient profile. Like if you stumbled upon it on match.com you’d be all “that’s the one.”

Kale, red cabbage, bell pepper, carrots, broccoli, and parsley are all very dense in Vitamins K, A, C, and B6, folate, and fiber. They are all full of anti-oxidants, help lower cholesterol, regulate your blood sugar, and are said to prevent disease.

Walnuts add protein and additional antioxidants to the mix, and avocados provide the healthy fats to help your body absorb the nutrients from all the veggies. A lemon-mustard dressing seals the deal on this detox delight.

Basically, The Ultimate Detox Salad is all the good juju tossed together in a vibrant explosion of flavor and texture. Whether you’re in a constant detox/re-tox cycle or are just looking for a crisp, fresh salad, this one’s a hero in a half-shell.

Yum just made and ate it right now ????. Thanks for making healthier eating easier and tastier ????????.

***Made a few modifications for time or because I didn't have the said item but still tasted Yummmm:

- used stevia instead of honey - used dried ground herbs instead of fresh cuz that's what I had - dressing needs plenty of black pepper IMO - skipped avocado, cabbage, and bell pepper and used cilantro instead of parsley - replaced seasame with chia seeds

Final note: this salad is big so if making for yourself, unless you're a giant you won't be able to finish!!

This salad is amazing! I've been experimenting by adding little additions. This week I added fresh mint leaves. They were not overpowering, and they complimented all of the flavors very nicely. For lack of ingredients for the dressing I made a quick apple cider vinaigrette. Love your recipes!!
