Post Turkey Day Detox Salad

Sharing is caring!

Are you feeling a little guilty about all the Thanksgiving Day carbs you just had?  How about a little detox before you start baking those cookies!
This fresh, raw, spicy, sweet salad is the perfect remedy! I had this for lunch recently at Whole Foods, it was so good I copied down all the ingredients so I could make it at home.
Chopped kale, shaved brussel sprouts, shredded carrots, sliced celery, parsley, basil, dried cherries, shaved parmesan and toasted almonds.
The combination of flavors are heavenly together when tossed with the dressing!
I’m not at all embarrassed to tell you that almost all the ingredients came from a bag, thanks to my local Trader Joes, which means you can whip this up in the time it takes you to zip open the bag!
The pictures may not do this salad justice, all I can tell you is I made a huge bowl and my daughter and I couldn’t stop eating it, we had it for lunch and dinner, and it’s even good the next day.
No exact recipe here, just dump handfuls of chopped kale, shaved brussel sprouts, shredded carrots, dried cherries, celery, parsley, basil and toasted almonds into a large bowl.
For the dressing, whisk together some olive oil, fresh lemon juice, 1 smashed garlic clove, a good drizzle of honey and some red pepper flakes.
Toss everything together along with freshly grated parmesan.
Sweet, Spicy, Crunchy, Cleansing!
