  • Notes


    This is a detox salad because it contains a very detoxifying herb called cilantro. There’s actually no lettuce in this salad – the cilantro makes up all the greens. Cilantro can help the body rid itself of heavy metals, reduce water weight, is a cancer fighter and can improve memory with its brain protecting vitamins and minerals. It’s an herb I like to incorporate in juices, in soups but especially salads like this one.

    This is also a salad you can enjoy warm or make ahead of time and store in the fridge for a few days – just remember to chop the avocado later right before serving.
