Beautiful and Delicious Detox Salads

As you all know, it’s detox season at the Tea Emporium. I’d like to share two of my favourite salad recipes with you this week. They’re both beautiful, colourful, light, nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory and most importantly, absolutely delicious! Both pair well with tea, an added bonus.

Ruby and Gold Beetroot, Apple, and Carrot Slaw

1  Red Beetroot-grated

1  Gold Beetroot-grated

1 Granny Smith apple-grated

2 carrots grated-use both purple and orange varieties for even more gorgeous colour

Juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon grated ginger (optional)

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Pair with Ginger Sencha or Rooibos Ginger Melon.

Emerald Kale, Green Mango, Red Pepper and Pumpkin Seed Salad

1 Bunch Kale, chopped and massaged with a bit of olive oil (I like the red winter variety for colour but any kind will do)

1 Red Bell Pepper-julienned

1 Green Mango-Julienned or diced

Half a red onion-finely sliced (optional)beautiful kale

Handful of raw pumpkin seeds

2 teaspoons of finely chopped jalapeno, seeds removed (optional)

Juice of 1 lime

Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. This one tastes even better if you let the flavours meld together for a few hours. Pairs well with Green Tea Kombucha Lime or Sencha Kiwi Garden.

 

Enjoy!
