This Rainbow Detox Salad may help to cleanse your body, eliminate toxins and brighten your skin.
What could be better after a weekend of indulging than a fresh detox salad, full of the colours of the rainbow? This Rainbow Detox Salad will help to cleanse your body, eliminate toxins and brighten your skin. It’s full of fresh crunchy vegetables, juicy berries, and nuts and seeds.
Just as a real estate agent’s mantra is “location, location, location,” today my mantra was “presentation, presentation, presentation.” I wouldn’t have been so enthused about diving into this salad if it was all tossed together in a bowl. Blueberries or beets staining my cucumbers? Don’t even think about it.
I used my Spiral Vegetable Slicer to spiralize the beets, cucumbers and carrots, just because it’s fun. And awfully cute. Grating these veggies would be just fine too, if you don’t have a spiralizer.
