When you’re cleansing, you should be eating a good balance of dark leafy greens, fresh fruits, and nuts. This salad is yummy, and has a nice balance of bitter and sweet. Unlike other meals you might make while cleansing, it’s easy to throw together in 5 minutes if you have the ingredients on hand. I recommend using raw honey, or agave nectar, in this recipe.
3 c. fresh organic arugula
1/4 c. organic raisins
1/4 c. organic raw almonds, or slivered almonds
1/2 organic Granny Smith apple, or Golden Delicious apple, diced
1 tbsp. organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp. raw honey or agave nectar
Salt, to taste (optional — it’s healthier without the salt)
Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, honey/agave nectar, and/or salt together. Toss the dressing with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!
