detox salad


Another Pinterest find here—a knockoff recipe of Whole Food's Detox Salad by Angela from Oh She Glows. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, raisins, currants, sunflower seeds, parsley, lemon juice, and a touch of maple syrup. Pretty delicious, even more so because it makes you feel healthy when you eat it. I'm not sure of its actual detoxification qualities, except for a pretty large amount of fiber. But that was ok by me. I made this the day after we had fried chicken, so I needed to eat something healthy for a while to alleviate my unhealthy food guilt.

The recipe is great as is. But the currants I found tasted exactly like raisins, and I'm not a big raisin fan anyway, so I'd probably use less of the dried fruit next time. Raw kale would be a good addition. Substitute cilantro, lime and black beans for the parsley, lemon and dried fruit to give it a southwest/Mex kick. And the quinoa that I added to make a complete lunch was excellent.

Head over to Oh She Glows for the recipe, and let me know if you come up with any tasty variations!

Yum! Quinoa sure is funny looking up close. Do you toast yours first? I've never cooked with it before but I'd like to.
