This is a nice salad which is very easy to prepare and perfect for these summer months.
What you need?
Source some lovely green leaves – I particularly like kale and spinach, but it works with lettuce or any other green leaves that are in season.
Next take 4 carrots and grate them up and add to the leaves
Finally, take three handfuls of seeds – sesame pumpkin, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower. I prefer raw, organic seeds for maximum nutrition, but the recipe works with roasted seeds too.
Now for the magic – the dressing. For this, you’ll need:
2 ripe avocados
4 large sun-dried tomatoes
A teaspoon of chia seeds (great for energy and as an aid to digestion)
A pinch of sea salt (again, sea salt has more minerals than table salt, but the recipe works with table salt if you can’t get your hands on sea salt)
A pinch of raw garlic granules
Step 1: Chop the leaves, grate the carrots and mix together with the seeds
Step 2. Pull all of the dressing ingredients together into a blender, push down and then blend on high speed until smooth (about 1 minute in my vitamin blender)
Step 3: Take the mixture and gradually stir into the salad and fold in until all of the leaves are covered with the delicious dressing.
Step 4: Enjoy on it’s own or with flax crackers or quality protein.
