This cleansing raw salad with herb dressing is a great recipe to make during meal prep on a Sunday. It keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days. Raw colourful salads are a fantastic way to increase the nutrient density of your diet, especially when you add fresh herbs. Herbs are extremely cleansing and are loaded with antioxidants.
Serves 4 as a side
4 large handfuls of baby kale
1 carrot, thinly sliced (I use a julienne peeler)
½ red capsicum, finely sliced
½ large cucumber, chopped into half moons
¼ purple cabbage, finely sliced
½ cup parsley
¼ cup seeds (I use a mix of pumpkin & sunflower)
1/3 cup olive oil
½ cup herbs (I use a mix of coriander, basil & parsley)
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
Juice form ½ a lemon (or 1 lemon if it’s not that juicy)
Add all salad ingredients (except for the seeds) onto a large plate.
Add all dressing ingredients together into a blender and blend until well combined.
Pour dressing over the salad, sprinkle seeds on top and enjoy!
