Introducing the Happy Skin Salad – a vibrant medley designed to nourish your body and leave your skin glowing with delight. This refreshing salad combines the crunch of grated carrot and beetroot, the coolness of cucumber, the creaminess of avocado, and the nutrient-rich goodness of dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, and parsley. Elevate the texture with a sprinkle of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and pine nuts, creating a symphony of flavors.
But what makes this salad truly special is the Detox Dressing – a zesty blend of fresh lemon juice, cold-pressed olive oil, a hint of mustard powder or wholegrain mustard, and a touch of apple cider or balsamic vinegar. Seasoned with sea salt and black pepper, this dressing adds a burst of tangy goodness to the salad.
Toss the ingredients together, drizzle with the Detox Dressing, and finish with a generous sprinkle of seeds and pine nuts. For an extra protein boost, consider adding tuna or salmon in olive oil. Delight in the vibrant colors, crisp textures, and the wholesome goodness of the Happy Skin Salad – a recipe that not only satisfies your taste buds but also pampers your skin with every bite.
