Beauty Detox Salad

You probably`ve heard that greens are great for your skin and organs because of their alkalizing properties, variety of minerals and chlorophyll content. In this salad, you can accelerate the detox process in your body by adding leaves of nettle to your dressing: very rich in iron and various health benefits food. You can substitute it with arugula as well.

What you need:

A head of lettuce, 2 medium zucchinis, 2 spoons of raw seeds of your choice (I used pumpkin and sesame seeds for this recipe), kumquats (or cherry tomatoes), nettles (or arugula), one small pear, fresh lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar).

Optional adds:

Basil, mustard, nutritional yeast, jalapenos pepper (just a small piece),  dulse, serving of Dr. Bragg`s liquid aminos sauce

For the dressing: blend on low speed a couple of nettle leaves, with 1 or 2 zucchinis (I put the second into my spiralizer as a decoration but feel free to simply peel or chop it into small pieces – or use it in the dressing for more thickness), a small pear, leaves of basil, touch of nutritional yeast, the seeds and a piece of a jalapenos pepper (use as much as you desire, beware it`s spicy!), tiny bits of mustard (preferably organic) and half of a fresh lemon. Blend it until smooth and then combine with the lettuce. If you want to be saltier go for Dr Bragg`s aminos – low in sodium and rich in amino acids healthier substitute for soy sauce.

Enjoy!
