Scale

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients

  • 4 cups spinach
  • 12 cups pea shoots
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup almonds, crushed or chopped
  • 1 avocado, cut into chunks

Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1/2 jalapeƱo pepper (I left the ribs and seeds – it was spicy and delicious)
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro
  • 2 scallions

Instructions

  1. Puree all the dressing ingredients together, adding the cilantro last and stopping when the texture feels right to you. I went for little green flecks of cilantro and scallion throughout.
  2. Toss the salad ingredients together with dressing; serve immediately.

Notes

Okay okay, I know, technically this isn’t a “detox” salad because I included a small amount of feta and Greek yogurt. But it’s close enough for me, and if it’s not close enough for you, it’s also really easy to omit both of those ingredients. For the dressing, just increase the amount of oil and acid slightly and/or use almond butter to thicken. Enjoy!
