Spring is here and after a brutal, freezing cold winter in Sydney (not) its always nice to give the body a gentle cleanse to feel fresh, renewed and revived. A cleansing salad or detox salad is simply a mixture of ingredients that have detoxifying properties on the body. Finely chopping the vegetables in a food processor makes them easier to chew up and digest, not to mention much quicker to prepare.
Each of these colourful vegetables, as well as the powerful dressing ingredients, play a beautiful role in restocking the body with key vitamins, minerals and nutrients while also helping in eliminating toxins. Make a large batch and enjoy throughout the week. The lime and olive oil will keep the salad fresh and from drying out. Get in the habit of blitzing salads with various ingredients for fast nutritious food on the go.
