A Perfect Detox Salad [Recipe]

unspecifiedSpring weather has me craving a light, fresh, and bright salad recipe. This one from my book, Go With Your Gut, takes less than 15 minutes to toss together and is so delicious!


  • 1 cups uncooked quinoa (or 2 cups salad greens)
  • 1 daikon radish, grated
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • ½ to 1 cup mix of micro greens and/or sprouts of any kind
  • 1/2 bunch fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped or torn
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Handful of raw sunflower seeds
  • Juice of 1 lemon, preferably Meyer
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Cook the quinoa according to the package directions. Drain and use it warm or refrigerate it until cold depending on your preference.

  2. To make the salad, combine all the ingredients and serve immediately!
 Glass of rosé optional.
