Green Detox Salad
Recipe Type: Salad
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 25 mins
Serves: 4 servings.
Blanch Beans and Okra:
In a medium sized sauce pan, heat water until boiling. Add Okra and beans for 2 minutes. Drain and then place vegetables in a container of iced water. This will bring out the vibrancy of their color and keep their crunch.
Toast Nuts: In a preheated oven of 180 degrees celsius, place nuts on a tray and toast for 10 minutes, turning once or twice.
Grate broccoli and cauliflower by hand or in a food processor.
Deseed jalepenos, destem mint leaves, and juice lemons. Add into a small food processor and process until it becomes a smooth dressing. It will be extremely strong in lemon at this point but it will be perfect when you add it to everything else.
Mix all 4 steps above, keeping some nuts aside for a garnish. Serve when ready! Then sit back with your loved ones, and enjoy this hearty salad that makes healthy eating delicious!
