Is anyone else having the craziest week of life? I finally know what it means to be too busy to eat a meal, and I never thought I would say that. Ever. And, while I do love my protein bars and whole fruit to go on busy days, it’s getting a little ridiculous. Not to mention that fall baking season is upon us…I’m so screwed.
Today I’m making a promise to myself to eat one salad each and every day, and I started by making one of my favorites of all time. There’s minimal chopping involved and the homemade dressing comes together in about 5 seconds flat. Nutrient and protein packed with a hint of spice and mild asian flavors, I can’t imagine there’s a single person that wouldn’t eat a massive bowl of this on the daily.
Sesame-Ginger Detox Salad
(based on this recipe)
For the dressing:
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp ground ginger
sea salt to taste
For the salad:
3 cups torn kale
1/2 cup edamame (I buy the frozen kind & don’t even defrost it)
3/4 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup sugar snap peas (chopped in half, or whole)
1 avocado, sliced
- In a mason jar or tupperware, combine the ingredients for the dressing (I like to make a double batch and keep it in the fridge!). Cap the jar and shake until well combined.
2. In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients for the salad.
3. Pour dressing over salad and toss. Top with another sprinkle of sea salt. Enjoy!
Have a great day, y’all!
