Eat This Salad and Supercharge Your Day
Most people’s idea of a salad is a drab boring affair of iceberg lettuce and out-of-season tomatoes. I’m here to change that perception because a really good salad is far from boring. A proper salad should be bursting with life, flavor and should cause YOU to burst with energy. This superfood salad recipe is easy to make and filled with good-for-you ingredients. The cilantro tahini dressing is quick and easy to make too.
Eating more salad is a great way to detoxify and alkalize. For example, raw fruits, vegetables, and fats in a well-balanced salad will give your body valuable enzymes that make digestion easy. This will fuel you with more energy instead of depleting it. Isn’t that what food is supposed to do?!
A well-balanced salad should have a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. By combining seasonal fruits, nuts, and seeds you’ve suddenly created a beautiful meal instead of just an uninspired “necessity” on the plate.
Here’s a recipe for a delicious superfood salad that’s sure to increase your energy, ease your digestion and supercharge your entire day with this easy superfood salad recipe! This cilantro tahini dressing is also great on top of grilled chicken.
Superfood Salad with Cilantro Tahini Dressing
- 2 cups spinach
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 apple, petite diced
- 1-2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup fresh berries of choice
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- ¼ cup diced red onion
- a drizzle of Tahini Dressing
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
Cilantro Tahini Dressing
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 tablespoon tamari
- juice of a half lemon
- 1 tablespoon of water
- For the dressing: Whisk or blend all ingredients together. Add more water until desired consistency is reached. If you want the cilantro in a smooth consistency, I suggest, blending it in a blender. However, leaving the cilantro chopped is an easy and quick way to make this dressing. This is how I enjoy it.
- For the salad: In a large serving bowl, add the spinach, half of the lemon juice, a drizzle of Tahini Dressing, and a little sea salt. Massage until the spinach starts to soften and wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Top with apples, pumpkin seeds, berries, onions & parsley.
