Healing Spring Salad Recipe

Healing Spring Salad Recipe

After a winter of eating denser, more fatty foods, our systems crave a gentle, nourishing cleanse that will help to rejuvenate us and clear any digestive heaviness.

This refreshing, high-fiber salad is just the ticket. Greens and fresh herbs inspire us with their upward-growing movement and lively flavors. Peas, asparagus, and radishes add fiber and nourishment, and berries with their tart-sweet flavor and antioxidant goodness shine like jewels. These seasonal ingredients can make us feel fresher and more energized, and the combination tastes so good!


For each serving:

One generous handful of any of the following, or a combination:
arugula, watercress, mustard greens, dandelion greens
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives, dill, or mint
1/4 cup fresh raw peas or frozen, thawed
1 radish, thinly sliced
2 asparagus spears, lightly steamed, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 ripe strawberries, sliced

1. Lightly toss the ingredients together and place on a pretty salad plate. Sprinkle with a splash of olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon, and a pinch of salt.
