I think a huge veggie salad and an apple a day keep the doctor away, right?! This Chopped Detox Salad combines everything I love all in one. Lately, I’ve been leaning more towards recipes that are detoxifying and nourishing. It’s good to give your body a break from heavy meals sometimes, so I’m loving this salad at the moment. It’s filling too – which is important to me. I want to feel satisfied, not starved after eating a salad for a meal. A huge veggie-packed, plant-protein packed bowl will do the trick.

Preparation

  1. In a food processor, shred cauliflower, kale, cabbage, carrots, onion, and cilantro. I had to do this in 3 or 4 different increments, it depends how big your food processor is. Add to large bowl and mix together. Then fold in hemp hearts, raisins and sunflower seeds.
  2. In a blender, combine all the ingredients for the citrus dressing and blend until well combined.
  3. I like to keep the salad and dressing separate unless being served at a party, but that way it doesn't get soggy in the refrigerator for leftovers throughout the week.
