Today’s delicious salad recipe comes from one of our favorite healthy living books, Detox for Women by Natalia Rose. While the recipes in Natalia’s book are not all vegan, there are some that contain fish, raw goat cheese and yogurt, the non-vegan recipes are thankfully few and far between. The other bonus, is that all the recipes are gluten free, just be sure to use gluten-free condiments in areas where she calls for them, such as dijon mustard. What the book mostly consists of are delicious, mostly-raw, plant-based dishes that do not only taste divine, but will leave your body feeling happy and cleansed.
This salad recipe is aptly named the “Fountain of Flavor” salad. In addition to savory garlic and amazing herbs, such as oregano and thyme, there is an unexpected touch of cinnamon and clove. These are balanced with some tangy lemon and a pinch of sweet Stevia, to give a full bouquet of flavors. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next dinner party or potluck.
