Lemony Dill Detox Salad

Every once in a while, my random kitchen experiments turn into absolute gems! Case in point with this recipe that I’m excited to share!

If you follow along on Instagram you would have seen this last week, but for those on the good ol’ traditional internet, here it is. 🙂

About This Salad:

  • I substituted what would be a grain of sort (quinoa, brown rice) for cauliflower rice. I’ll explain how I made it below.
  • This salad contains simple flavouring, which means if it is tasting at all bland to you, just increase the flavour (lemon, dill, salt, pepper)! I ended up with twice the dill on there than what I started with.
  • The roasted yams are optional, but add awesome colour and make it a bit more filling too!
  • This salad is on the list of detox foods because of the greens, lemon juice and of course the cauliflower that contains something called “Indole 3 Carbinol” – excellent for supporting your liver!

Ingredients

Roasted Yam:

  • 1 yam, diced
  • sprinkle of salt, pepper & oil

Cauliflower Rice

  • ½ large head of cauliflower
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder

Remaining Salad:

  • 5oz arugula & spinach mix (or just one or the other)
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 1 large lemon juiced
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ cup of dill, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste (about 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. Dice the yams and place on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper
  3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and a touch of olive or grapeseed oil
  4. Roast for 25-30 minutes
  5. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat with 1 TBSP coconut oil
  6. Meanwhile, roughly dice ½ your cauliflower head so that it fits in the food processor
  7. You will have to do it in a few batches as it doesn't all fit
  8. Pulse the cauliflower until it's a rice like consistency, trying not to shred it too finely - it can have a few small chunks in there
  9. Place the cauliflower rice in the frying pan and season with garlic powder and onion powder
  10. Saute for 10-15 minutes until fully cooked through
  11. While that's happening, dice the cucumber, celery, greens, avocado, green onions and dill
  12. Mix everything together in a bowl, and season with oilve oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper
  13. If it needs more flavour, you can add a pinch of cayenne, or more salt, pepper, dill and lemon juice!
