Spring Detox Salad


Spring is here and after a brutal, freezing cold winter in Sydney (not) it’s always nice to give the body a gentle cleanse to feel fresh, renewed and revived. A cleansing salad or detox salad is simply a mixture of ingredients that have detoxifying properties on the body.

Make a large batch and enjoy throughout the week. The lime and olive oil will keep the salad fresh and from drying out. Get in the habit of blitzing salads with various ingredients for fast nutritious food on the go.
