Superfood Salad with Honey Lemon Vinaigrette – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Superfoods are those things that make your body get-up and go like; broccoli, brussels sprouts and leafy greens.  These foods are a great choice for a healthy diet and make you feel as though you can do anything with your day.  I try and make these nutritious choices on most days because eating a green diet mixed with some protein just makes me feel good.

When I was in Nashville, TN a few weeks back, I had a delightful salad at a cafe called, Milk & Honey in the Gulch.  It was loaded with these exact things and I remember how great I felt after lunch.  The raw salad ingredients mixed with fresh berries and dried fruits, had great crunch and a super satisfying taste – I loved it.

So, here’s my version of a superb Superfood Salad – one quick hint…use your food processor to slice the brussels sprouts and broccoli, and then toss with leafy spinach.  Also, the vinaigrette is a snap and perks up the mix of greens with a sweet and tangy balance.  You can always add some shredded chicken or tuna to the mix for a bump of protein – it’s going to be a nice thing to eat during the hot week ahead.
