One of my favorite salads at the Whole Foods Salad Bar is the Detox Salad, it always hits the spot. Recreating it at home is easy and over the times I have made I have changed it up swapping raisins for dried cranberries, adding a little agave or maple syrup, ect. For a main meal salad I also like to toss it with some chopped kale. Avoiding some of the foods in this salad for thyroid reasons it has been awhile since I have made it or enjoyed it but recently while out for a mother daughter date with my oldest she wanted to grab dinner at the Whole Foods Salad Bar. I saw the salad and had to have some. We finished our night out but it wasn’t complete without me stopping on the way home to grab the things I needed that we didn’t have at home to make a big, an understatement, batch of this salad. I always make a big batch and enough it through the week. If you wanted you could make a smaller amount by cutting the recipe in half, however you may wish you had made the giant batch once you start eating it.
Detox Salad Remix
Make approximately 18-20 cups (more if adding kale), servings depends on if serving as main dish or side
2lb broccoli florets (about 10 cups, 1.33lb after cut)
2lb cauliflower florets, steams cut/ shaved (about 6.5 cups, 1.5 lbs after cut)
2 1/2 c shredded carrots
3/4 c sunflower seeds
3/4 c currants
1/2 c finely chopped fresh parsley
1- 1 1/2 c dried cranberries or raisins
1/2 c fresh lemon juice, to taste
2 TBSP agave or pure maple syrup
Sea salt and pepper to taste
2 TBSP Seaweed GOMASIO, optional (found at Whole Foods looking for granulated kelp)
10-12 oz chopped kale, optional
Either cut stems/ shave the cauliflower florets and crumble into small chunks. Do the same with the broccoli and toss together in a large bowl with cauliflower. I like to mix this salad together with my hands. Toss and mix in shredded carrots, sunflower seeds, currants, parsley, and cranberries/raisins. In a small bowl mix together lemon juice and agave/maple syrup. Drizzle over salad and toss with your hands. Sprinkle with Seaweed GOMASIO if using and season with salt and pepper. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy! If desired toss with chopped kale before serving, I do this so I can add it based on my mood and enjoy it with or without.
