Summer is salad season, and what better kind of salad to consume than a detox salad? These Cabbage Carrot Slaw detox salad is not only delicious, but liver-supporting and cleansing, too!
What I love most about salads is their versatility. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and you’ve got something super flavourful and nutrient-dense. The best salads involve those that utilize a variety of flavours and textures, and each detox salad recipe I’m sharing does just that!
Cabbage Carrot Slaw
- 1/4 small purple cabbage (1-1.5 cups), chopped
- 1 small carrot, grated
- 2-3 large kale leaves, chopped
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
Tangy Lemon Garlic Dressing
- 1 tbsp sesame tahini
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Chop up all veggies and add to bowl. Add in cranberries and sunflower seeds and toss until combined.
In separate, small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until smooth. Drizzle on top of mixed salad and combine until evenly coated.
Enjoy immediately, or let sit for 5-10 minutes to let the hearty kale and cabbage absorb the flavours.
Cabbage Carrot Slaw Detox Benefits:
A cruciferous vegetable that helps induce phase 2 detoxification enzymes in the liver, and contains compounds (such as I3C) that help aid in removing excess estrogens. The purple, antioxidant-rich hue from the cabbage also helps support our liver!
Another cruciferous vegetable rich in anti-cancer phytonutrients.
