Sunshine Detox Salad

Serves 4

ingredients


  • 1 head purple cabbage
  • 3 carrots
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup mixed herbs: I like cilantro, parsley, basil, and mint, but feel free to use whatever you've got lying around.
  • 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • avocado (optional)

*for the tahini-orange vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • squeeze of sriracha
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
instructions


  1. Make the dressing: combine everything in a jar and shake!
  2. Cut the purple cabbage into quarters and core. Shred into very thin ribbons -- I use either a mandoline or a food processor to make my life easier. Add shredded cabbage to a large bowl and drizzle with a little of the vinaigrette and a sprinkle of salt. Use hands to massage cabbage for about a minute to help it soften.
  3. Cut carrots into very thin coins, or shave on a mandoline, and add to the bowl.
  4. Halve cherry tomatoes and add to the bowl.
  5. Roughly chop the herbs, then add them to the bowl with sunflower seeds, a big drizzle of dressing, and a pinch of salt.
  6. Toss it all together, and top with avocado if you want to make it more substantial. Eat and feel clean!
