Delicious Superfood Salad
A superfood salad does NOT have to taste like soil, I repeat, no soil-y salads over here! — anybody out there relate to this?! I’m a huge fan of fresh greens — even the super hearty ones — but there are so many superfood salads out there (even some that we’ve had at restaurants eeeek!) that taste like straight up dirt in your mouth.
This superfood detox salad, on the other hand, is a delicious punch of flavor in your mouth with a super yummy homemade dressing and all the superfood greens (+ a few superfood fruits!) your body loves. And did we mention it’s super easy to whip up? Let’s get into it:
How to Make a Superfood Detox Salad
There are many great superfood fruits and veggies that pair well together for a salad, but for this superfood detox salad we’re using some of our favorite (and especially nutrient-dense) superfoods that combine together for the great detoxing qualities your body loves. Plus, it’s oh so easy to make:
Gather up all your veggies! You’ll need:
- 16 oz of a shredded brussels sprout slaw mix (we’ll get into this in a bit!)
- Red onion
Grab your fruits!
- Green apple
Add in your healthy nuts, seeds, and grains!
- Slivered almonds
- Sunflower seeds
Finish up with your healthy homemade dressing (we’ll get into this too below!) and mix it all together for the most scrumptious and healthy superfood detox salad you’ve ever had. #yahwelcome
Shredded Brussel Sprout Slaw
We love using bagged slaw mixes for salads like this (our fave is the Trader Joe’s Brussels Sprout Slaw Mix), but feel free to prepare your own slaw if you prefer. The mix we used contains brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli slaw and cabbage, but feel free to get creative with whatever veggies you have on hand or which ever brussels sprout slaw mix your grocery store has.
How to Make Detox Salad Dressing
Although this dressing looks like it packs a long list of ingredients, we’re betting you have most of them on hand in your own kitchen already. You’ll need:
- Grapeseed oil (or olive oil, if you prefer that!)
- Fresh grated ginger
- Fresh chopped parsley
- Fresh chopped basil
- Lemon juice
- Apple cider vinegar
- Ground turmeric
- Salt and cayenne to taste (with a little more cayenne if you like a little kick!)
To prepare this detox salad dressing, simply place all your ingredients in a mason jar with a lid and shake until fully combined. If you don’t have a mason jar with a tight lid, feel free to mix this dressing up in a bowl with a whisk.
