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.
Hope you’ll like this spring detox salad! I know I did!
