Detox Salad

As soon as I saw this recipe pop up in my Facebook feed, I hopped on the bandwagon.  I mean, who DOESN’T need something wholesome to eat in between Halloween candy binges?  (Oh, Reese’s Pumpkins…you are my nemises…)  Buuuuuut when I went shopping my TJ’s didn’t have any beets or sunflower seeds (seriously, WTF?), so I kinda just grabbed anything and everything I thought would taste good together.

Here’s my own riff on this salad, and it’s pretty damn good.  Filling, so healthy it hurts, and a great way to change up my daily Big Ass Salad.  I’ve had this every single day for lunch this week with some chicken and it’s so much more fun than spinach and tomato.  Plus, you know, it’s got superfoods in it.  Kale and cabbage and apple cider vinegar, OH MY!

    do you put the dressing on as you eat it, or toss it all together and it stays good in the fridge for the week? Sounds wonderful!

      Either would be fine but I put the dressing on when I made it and stored it that way :-)
