Detox Salad & Dressing

I think detoxing sounds like the most disgusting thing ever. It sounds stinky and bitter and bland. At least that’s what I used to think. But this Detox salad & dressing will defy the disgusting image you may have in your mind (like I used to have.)  It is actually delicious, satisfying, and really makes you feel better and better with each bite. It’s awesome!

The funny thing is this post wasn’t planned (at least by us anyway!) It was just another lunch, but with detox in mind. And if you read our posts “My Healthy Diet Backwards,” you’ll know why. 🙂 But when I posted it through Instagram, the messages and comments poured in, asking us to post the recipe. So you can thank our cute friends everywhere for this recipe.

True friends are

the people in our lives

that make us

laugh louder, smile brighter,

& live better!

 

The salad is just nothing but nutrients and rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential for safe detoxification. The omega 3’s are found in 3 items in this salad–the wild salmon, the walnuts, and  the extra virgin olive oil in the dressing.

For those of you who look at the ingredients and see, “nutritional yeast,” don’t be alarmed. You’ll stop scrunching up your nose when you learn how nutritional those flakes are, power loaded with B vitamins, in fact they happen to provide the only plant source of vitamin B12, which we never want to become insufficient in.  We love them! Nutritional yeast flakes have a bit of a cheesy taste and are also great to sprinkle over all kinds of salads and vegetables just as they are.

Another thing to keep in mind, is the cilantro is added because it is one of the best vegetables for detoxifying. It has been shown to actually help the body release toxic chemicals and heavy metals.  For that reason, I go out of my way to always make sure that I’m buying organic cilantro…can you imagine the chemicals something like that could contain if it’s not organic???

Lol, I think I may need your help!  I made this detox salad & dressing up, but can’t quite think of a name for it. It’s soo delicious, is a bit tangy, zesty…and very yellow. For those of you who try it, please help me give it a name!  That would be awesome 🙂
