This raw spring detox salad is not only healthy but delicious too! I never thought eating detox salads would be so good! The hemp oil-horseradish dressing gives it a special taste.
I love Spring! All these fresh, green veggies in the markets and the lovely weather…ah..this is Heaven for me! Yesterday was the first day of my detox program. I never thought it would be so easy to detox on a raw diet! I haven’t felt hungry at all! I drank 2 glasses of orange, glowing carrot juice in the morning, ate this delicious salad at lunch, drank a glass of apricot-banana smoothie as a snack and for dinner, I had another large spinach salad with pepitas and a crazy-good tahini dressing! Oh gosh! That was amazing! Too bad I didn’t take a photo to share it with you too, but I’ll make it again today.
I never thought I was good at making salads. Now, I figured out I was just lazy! Yesterday I proved myself I can make some amazing salads with super-tasty dressings! For the next 10 days, I’ll be eating lots of spring detox salads, so I’ll surely improve my salad and dressing-making skills.
As the weather warms up and the days get longer, it’s time to start thinking about light and refreshing meals that will leave you feeling energized and revitalized. That’s why I’m excited to share my recipe for a Spring Detox Salad – a delicious and nutritious meal that’s perfect for the season.
This salad is packed with fresh, seasonal ingredients like parsley, spinach, radishes, ramps, watercress, and scallions. Each ingredient is carefully chosen for its health benefits, making this salad a great way to give your body a little extra TLC.
To make this salad even more nourishing, I’ve added some raw golden flax seeds. Flax seeds are a rich source of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, both of which are important for maintaining good digestive health.
The dressing for this salad is equally important, as it adds a burst of flavor that ties everything together. I’ve used a combination of cold-pressed hemp oil, lemon juice, sea salt, herbs de Provence, and grated horseradish. The hemp oil is a great source of healthy fats, while the lemon juice adds a tangy flavor that balances out the other ingredients. The horseradish adds a little kick and also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Overall, this Spring Detox Salad is a perfect way to celebrate the arrival of spring and all the fresh, vibrant ingredients that come with it. It’s quick and easy to make, and it’s a great way to nourish your body and feel your best. So go ahead and give it a try – your body will thank you!
Hope you’ll like this spring detox salad! I know I did!
