Detox Cleanse Salad Recipe
If all detox dishes were as delicious as this salad, I would be munching on detox food all the time! I came up with this detox cleanse salad recipe when I was in dire need of vegetables. It was one of those weeks when I let myself slip a little too much: I ate a slice of pizza here and some fries there and finished the week with a big slice of cake. You know that awful feeling you get when you know you’ve eaten too much bad stuff? I was there and it needed to then and there!
I really enjoy this detox cleanse salad because it really does make me feel good. The combination of fresh, crunchy vegetables, sweet apple and citrus vinaigrette tastes so healthy and delicious! The avocado is there to make the salad meatier so you don’t feel like going after something solid or starchy to fill you up after the meal.
I used the shredder attachment of my food processor to make this detox cleanse salad as it makes the whole process so fast and easy. On the other hand, you can chop the veggies with a knife or use a grater (medium grate) if you don’t have access to one. You can also add other vegetables such as zucchini or celery, or make it peppery with some arugula leaves if you would like more versatility.
The servings are big for this detox cleanse salad recipe – It makes about four big bowls. So go ahead and cut the recipe in half if you think it’s too much! I personally like to make more of it so Ben and I can have some leftovers the next day.
