Mix & Match Detox Salad

Every ingredient listed is very supportive of the body’s detoxification pathway.  So be creative and choose one or more items from each column to combine in a salad. The greens, veggies and fruit ideally organic and raw. Nuts and seeds ideally raw, or dry roasted.  Fresh pressed, unrefined oils.

Serves 4

Looks even prettier with our in-season Texas Pink Grapefruit!

Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 1 large bunch arugula (about 4 cups)
  • 1 bunch watercress (about 2 cups)
  • 2 TBS coarsely chopped walnuts

Dressing

  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp prepared Dijon mustard
  • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Peel grapefruit and cut out each section between the membrane.
  • Prepare arugula by tearing into pieces, washing and drying. Cut off tops of watercress and wash and spin dry along with the arugula. A salad spinner is the best way of doing this.
  • Mix together dressing ingredients, toss with salad greens and grapefruit sections and top with chopped walnuts.
