The Ultimate Liver Cleansing Salad

Last week we dished up a Mini Detox Menu fit for a king (or mini-king). This week, a jumbo salad to cleanse your liver and tantalise your tastebuds… Enjoy!

Start with a supercharged salad base…
Mix 2-3 of the following delicious bitter and leafy greens: 
- Spinach
- Rocket
- Endives
- Dandelion leaves
- Mustard greens
- Watercress

Next, the bulk of your salad…
Choose as many of the following as you like:
- Grated white and red cabbage
- Grated carrot
- Grated apple
- Diced beetroot
- Sliced avocado
- Diced tomato
- Boiled egg, chopped in quarters
- Raw almonds, activated if possible
- Mixed beans and/or lentils (from the can if you don’t have time to soak)

If you have extra time…
Prepare the following the night before and throw them in the mix:
- Asparagus (lightly seared)
- Broccoli (raw or lightly steamed/sautéed fine)
- Brown rice or other wholegrain

Whip together a tasty little dressing…
We suggest making a bottle or jar (easy to shake and you can go back to it again and again):
- Olive oil
- Balsamic or apple cider vinegar
- Squeezed lemon, lime and grapefruit
- Crushed garlic
- Finely diced red onion
- Turmeric
- Dijon mustard if you like a kick to your dressing!

And now for the garnish…
Sprinkle with:
- Gomasio
- Seeds
- Fresh herbs

Serve with green tea, et voilà!
