Slim Down Detox Salad (From Our NEW e-Cookbook)

Eating this salad is like taking a cool shower on a hot day: cleansing, refreshing and totally revitalizing.

It’s 90 degrees as we type and all we can think about is diving into some crisp lettuce crunchy sprouts, creamy avocado and tart grapefruit.  So we wanted to share one of our summer staples: The Slim Down Detox Salad.

It’s the perfect salad on a steamy day, whenever you need to banish the belly bloat and great for getting back on track after a cray-cray weekend.

This salad is delicious and detoxifying and it’s just one of the many amazing recipes you’ll find in our new cookbook {Healthy} Cooking Camp: {Healthy} Cooking Basics.  Click the link to get more info on that!

Slim Down Detox Salad
Servings: 2
Time: 10 minutes

  • 1-2 handfuls of fresh spinach or arugula, cleaned and chopped (about 4 cups)
  • Handful of chopped dandelion greens
  • Sprouts (any kind will work, our fave is sunflower sprouts)
  • 1⁄4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 grapefruit, supremed
  • 8 small red radishes, sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup roughly chopped parsley


  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of honey, preferably raw
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper


Supreme your grapefruit – remove peel and cut out grapefruit segments. Save membrane and peels to squeeze juice for dressing.

Begin building your salad by layering spinach, dandelion greens and sprouts. Add grapefruit segments, radishes, parsley and avocado slices.

Drizzle salad dressing over salad and finish by sprinkling pumpkin seeds.

To make salad dressing

Squeeze the remaining grapefruit juice from membrane and peels into a bowl.

Add in honey and whisk.

Drizzle olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and continue to whisk until it’s all incorporated.

  1. Hello to you both & sincerest thanks for sharing your wonderful labors of love — your recipes & healthy tips!! Blessings galore!!

  2. I love your videos, you ladies are awesome! I went over to whole foods right after watching a bunch of your posts. I made the black bean pasta with butternut squash sauce with a side of the deviled eggs filled with roasted pepper hummus garnished with cayenne, parsley, and basil. Pretty nice dinner : ) Thank you. I also did buy a container of nutritional yeast. I added it to water with maca and garden of life raw protein with honey and chia seeds. It takes some getting used to, but super filling I could only consume half. Looking forward to trying your tempeh recipe next!

    • Hi Katherine! We’re so excited to hear that you tried and loved our recipes 🙂 We would recommend using the nutritional yeast on a salad. It has a salty, parmesan-cheese-type of taste so we can imagine that it would be kinda funky in water. But the rest of that beverage sounds super awesome and healthy! Keep us posted about the other recipes you try. And post pics on our Facebook page. We always love to see what our campers are cooking up! XxQ+R
