The “Detox Salad” at the Whole Foods salad bar is one of my favorites. I am really not a fan of raw broccoli, but somehow it’s ok when it is completely pulverized, as it is in this salad. I had been meaning to recreate this salad for a while, and then I remembered that Oh She Glows had done a remake of it. Of course I can’t leave well enough alone, so I added some kale and a little olive oil. I’ve been having it for lunch ever since. This recipe makes A LOT of detox salad. Enough for me to take it for lunch 5 days a week and the Huz to have a few tablespoons of the leftovers.
WF Detox Salad Copycat recipe, adapted from Oh She Glows Detox Salad, makes about 12 cups
-1 bunch carrots (about 3/4 pound of carrots, after the greens were removed)
-2 bunches broccoli
-1 head cauliflower
-3-4 leaves kale
-about 1/2 cup fresh parsley (more if you like parsley)
-1/2 cup sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup raisins
-1 cup currants (a.k.a. tiny expensive raisins. just use raisins if you can’t find these)
-1 T olive oil (the WF version is oil-free, but I have always read that the vitamins in raw veggies are absorbed better when eaten with a little oil, so I added it. Also, is this true?)
-juice from 1/2 lemon
-1 t kelp granules (optional)
-salt & pepper
This recipe comes together pretty quickly if you have a food processor. If not, roll up your sleeves and grab your elbow grease and let’s get started.
