My family had a bit of a rough 2016, and I could not have the best focus on my blog and didn’t give the amount I wanted to towards my blog! This year, my goal is to keep up my momentum and give you lots of great recipes! This superfood detox salad got me through many a tough day in 2016! So I am happy to finally be able to share this recipe with everyone!
It is the New Year and everyone is focusing on eating healthy! This is the salad for you! I love to get a bang for my buck! I love putting all the things that make me happy into one dish! This salad delivers with kale, spinach, brussel sprouts, and red cabbage! I top each salad with the wonderful grain farro! Farro is not used enough, its easy to prepare and delicious! If you are either vegan or gluten-free, swap out to quinoa! As always, cooking is all about flexibility to use your favorite ingredients! The beauty of cooking! Okay, back to the salad! Along with the farro, add in blueberries, avocado, and walnuts! Finish this yummy salad with my lemon vinaigrette that I make with lemon, tahini paste, tamari and agave! This dressing makes me happy and blends perfectly with all the lettuce, veggies, and fruit!
I make this superfood detox salad a lot! We love eating this detox superfood salad as our main meal! This salad is packed with ingredients that are so healthy and awesome for your body! It is also super versatile and adding in protein like chicken and shrimp are fabulous! If I am adding chicken or shrimp, I double the lemon vinaigrette to marinate the protein! This salad is perfect as a side to any meal or soup! Make a double amount of the salad on a Sunday night and use throughout the week. I keep the farro, blueberries, and red onions separately in ziplock bags and combine ingredients throughout the week. Of course, I add avocado when I am ready to eat my salad!
