Salads are a great way to have a refreshing and restoring meal that is both light and nutritious. Try out this version that maximizes the nutrition and is bursting with flavor.
These are your ingredients.
Green Leafy Vegetables
You want a big gathering of green leafy vegetables such as kale, lettuce and spinach. These lay down the base on which the salad will build, and are high in vitamins and minerals.
Next, chop up an avocado into fairly small chunks, season with slat and black pepper and add to the leaves. This will provide a buttery texture.
Slice up about half a cucumber and toss into the salad. Cucumbers are 95% water and have a soft alkaline pH. This will hydrate you, make your salad even fresher, and combine with the other ingredients on this list to make a refreshing alkali meal. This will aid digestion and reduce heartburn.
Tomato and Beet
Next, chop up a large tomato and some beets. This adds some nice shades of red to the green of the salad and introduces some nice textures. The acidity of the tomatoes contrasts nicely with the avocado and cucumber.
Nuts, Breadcrumbs and Olive Oil
Sprinkle on some crushed hazelnuts with a few breadcrumbs and toss sald in olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing.
