Detox Rainbow Salad

This hearty Fall detox salad is packed full of liver loving vegetables that support the body’s innate detoxification pathways and a great way to boost your immune system just in the knick of time for cold and flu season.  Cabbage, an excellent source of vitamin C and gut healing amino acid glutamine, makes this salad detoxifying, filling, and delicious. A raw salad, like this, is perfect for lunch or early dinner when digestion is at its strongest.

  • ½ cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 1 small beet, grated

In a large salad bowl add mixed greens, red cabbage, beets, artichoke hearts, carrots, parsley and diced avocado. Toss with dressing and top with hemp seeds and optional nutritional yeast and/or dulse flakes and serve.
