To be truthful, before I made this salad I thought there was a good chance it would taste like sh*t. Detox salad? It even sounds like it tastes bad. Detoxes aren’t fun, they don’t taste good, and more often than not they’re boring as f*ck. And let’s review the major ingredients:
It’s basically a small child’s nightmare.
But, I was determined to make it taste good. Don’t get me wrong, I love cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage. But I usually cook them individually, with a lot of butter. If you’re wondering why I would even attempt to make a raw broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower salad taste good, or make a detox salad in the first place, it’s because I’m trying to eat more cruciferous veggies. They’re packed with nutrients and you guessed it – they help you detox. And promotes, you know, regularity. As a health coach, I find myself asking basic strangers their bathroom habits. It no longer phases me. If you’re not regular, eat this salad.
And thank me, because it actually tastes good.
