My GLOW Detox Salad is easy to throw together and it’s loaded with nutrients. I love to make this salad ahead and then eat it for an easy lunch throughout the week.

Kale, purple cabbage and cilantro all have high levels of antioxidants which help to fight free radicals and inflammation in the body.

Ginger is an excellent anti-microbial and anti-parasitic and helps with detoxification. Give my detox salad a try this week!

Ingredients:

● 1 head Lacinato Kale, de-stemmed and shredded
● 1/2 head Purple Cabbage, shredded
● 1 bunch Cilantro

For the Dressing:

● 1/3 cup Sunbutter
● 4 tablespoons Lemon Juice (about 2 lemons)
● 1 tablespoon Coconut Aminos
● 1-2 tablespoons Water, or until you have desired thickness
● 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
● 1 tablespoon fresh grated Ginger
● 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt, to taste

Instructions:

1. Blend together all of the ingredients for the dressing until smooth. If you need to thin the dressing, add in 1 tablespoon water at a time until the desired
consistency is achieved.
2. Place the shredded kale, cabbage, and cilantro in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Eat immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days.

    Hi, Dr. Sands,
    Thank you for the recipe.
    I appreciate your knowledge and your sharing it with us.
    Since looking into gut solutions and finally finding you and Dr. B the Gut health doc., I have been overwhelmed with information. I am the type of person that needs to be led by the hand. I have tried everything and am learning I have been doing everything all wrong. Since the day I spoke with Jen, December 26, my husband and I have been ill with upper respiratory gunk. My husband is on really potent antibiotics and steroids with bronchitis.
    I have spoken with your counselor, Jen. She seems awesome. My problem is waiting until I can afford to make monthly payments to have help. I think I’m getting too much screen time trying to learn all the material that has come to me.
    I have done detoxing in the past. My story is similar to yours.

    Is Nuttlex butter ok to use instead of sun butter and just thrown in sunflower seeds?

      Hi, Mary! You can use any nut or seed butter you like – it just may change the flavor of the salad a bit.

    Sunbutter – I’ve never seen it in the shops – so can you make it at home? If so, does anyone have the receipe.

      Hi, Jaxh! Sunbutter is sold under different brand names, but is just sunflower seed butter. You can definitely make this at home easily by putting sunflower seeds in a blender or food processor and blending until a creamy butter forms – really to the texture you prefer. You can store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Hi dr Michelle- what’s a substitute for coconut aminos? Haven’t found them in this part of the world yet! Thanks

      Hi, Beverly! You could use gluten-free soy sauce, Tamari or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos instead. You can also find coconut aminos online.

      Hi, Dannielle! You could just omit the lemon juice altogether, but a splash of apple cider vinegar would work, too.
