Mean Green Super Salad

13 Aug

This was the best idea I’ve ever had for a salad and I can’t believe I’ve never thought of it before. I packed so much goodness into it by throwing all the ingredients into a processor and pulsing for a few beats. Viola~ best most nutritious salad ever.

I will tell you what I put into it, but what’s great is how completely customizable it is. Add your favorite veggies, even fruit!

Suggested ingredients (serves 4):

  • 3 cups raw kale
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 big chunk pineapple
  • 1 inch slice onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 bunch of parsely
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Throw some in the food processor, making sure not to put too much, and pulse it for 1 second a few times until chopped but not blended. I would suggest doing it in batches.

 

Other possible ingredients: corn kernels, an apple, quinoa, tempeh, beets, artichoke hearts, croutons, the list is endless!
