Lean Clean Detox Salad {Gluten Free, Vegetarian}

salad detox 2

Not only do I feel like I am a natural harvester when I chow down on this guilt-free salad, I feel like my internal organs are getting a good scrub down by the awesome, detoxing ingredients in this caveman meal.

Everything in this little mixture of greens is so good for you. It has crunch, tang and a little bit of savory flavor. Can it really get better than this? You will not – and I repeat – will not miss the meat in this little meal. The Brussels sprouts fill up that tummy and provide that fleshy goodness.

You will need: 1 green onion, 1 pinch of cilantro leaves, 2 handfuls of organic salad mix, 8 Brussels sprouts (cooked and sautéed with onions), 1 handful of almonds (chopped), ½ avocado and homemade Italian dressing.

Literally all you have to do is mix these all together and enjoy. You will want to chop the green onion and the cilantro (in order to make bite size pieces). Simply, add them to the salad mixture.salad detox

Sauté the Brussels sprouts in olive oil with chopped yellow onions. I typically let these sit the fridge for a couple days, after they are cooked, in order to soak in that onion flavor. Dump your plump Brussels sprouts into your green salad mixture.

In a food processor, place in a handful of almonds. And pulse – so you get little nuggets of almond pieces. Pour these crumbles over the greens.

Add your chopped avocado half – and then douse with dressing. Click on this link to find out how to make the best salad dressing that I have ever tasted – here.

Enjoy your detox salad.
