Yummy Detox Salad

This was lunch today!

Yummy Detox Salad
Yum, right?

I found this over at Iowa Girl Eats this morning.  I had everything I needed at home, except the kale. But since we were heading to Target to have Maria’s puffy goopy eye checked, I was able to get kale, while we waited for her prescription for pink eye.

So yeah, detox salad.  A great way to reset after you go off course with your eating. Nothing wrong with that. But I know for myself, it can be hard to redirect back on course, so something yummy like this is perfect!  I did make a few alterations based on the fact that I’ve never had much kale, so I eased in with just one large leaf. And oh, yeah, no almonds, since I’m allergic… And I made it from memory and I forgot carrots (I will add these next time)

I highly recommend you read the original recipe though, because she does a GREAT job of detailing out the health benefits of all the food in this salad.

Yummy Detox Salad

Kale
Baby Spinach
Shredded Cabbage (I used a handful from a bag of cole slaw mix)
Olive Oil
Raspberry Vinaigrette
Blueberries
Sliced Cucumbers
Raspberries
Sliced Strawberries

First start with cleaning the kale and baby spinach.  For the kale, I took one large leaf, washed it, rolled it up in a paper towel, and then just rolled it back and forth in my hands to tenderize it. and then tore it into bite size pieces.

I then tossed the kale, spinach and cabbage with a drizzle of olive oil and fat-free Raspberry Vinaigrette.

I then transferred it to a large plate and covered with the remaining ingredients.  Then I devoured.  YUM!!

  1. I found this from Iowa Girl too. I had it tonight for dinner. As per a reader suggested I added some feta cheese. Swapped the rasberries for grapes. Soooo good and light. Just what I needed for dinner after a un-healthy meal of fried chicken sandiwch for lunch.
