This is one of my favorite salads to keep in the fridge for the week. It's quick to make and easy to grab when schedules are tight. Once again, what's in your fridge and pantry? Cauliflower, kale, beets, broccoli, carrots, etc? What seeds, nuts, berries do you have? Play as you go. Once you figure out what you have and what you want to use, place veggies in Vita mix or chop into fine pieces. You want your ingredients to be finely chopped. When I use my vitamin for this, I always set it on level 1, because you want it in chopped small pieces. Chop small amounts at a time in VM, otherwise you will have a pureed sauce at the bottom.
I have created the following combinations with the lemon, olive oil, salt, pepper, currants, plus any added ingredients in parentheses.
- Cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots with sunflower seeds.
- Kale, Cauliflower with a mixture of sunflower and pumpkin seeds. (dash of apple cider vinegar and turmeric)
- Broccoli, beets, pumpkin seeds and seaweed. (blueberries, honey)
Once you have all your main ingredients chopped up and mixed. To make at the dressing, You will need- Lemon, Olive oil, Salt, Pepper, and currants. Possibly a little squeeze of honey or apple cider vinegar if you choose.
