FALL SUPERFOOD DETOX SALAD

It’s a vitamin bomb, with all the different rainbow-colored vegetables.  I think it’s not quite accidental that nature gives us cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts during the cold months, as all these cruciferous veggies are the perfect natural antibiotic, and immune system booster.   Eating them 4-5 times a week is optimal, especially now.  This salad makes it super easy to consume large quantities of one of these – the cabbage – green, purple, or a mix of both.

The humble cabbage is incredibly nutritious – it’s a powerhouse of anti-oxidants, and disease-fighting phytochemicals, and its vitamin C content is even higher than that of oranges.  Carrots add a boost of vitamin A, and B, and beets – not only are they packed with minerals and vitamins, but their high iron content has a blood purifying and detoxifying effect.  Add to that the natural antibiotic power of garlic, the good fat from avocados, walnuts, and olive oil, and I think you have a superfood salad!

This particular version of the salad has evolved over the years, and was primarily influenced by a couple of good friends of mine, who have perfected it.  They were the ones who clued me in on adding avocado which works surprisingly well with the rest of the ingredients.  The dressing is simple – just olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and garlic.    It’s the texture – from the nuts, the crunch from the veggies, and the creaminess of the avocado that all combine so well in the end.

This salad is as vitamin rich and nutritious as it is yummy - try it as a post-Thanksgiving treat and a break from heavy holiday food.
