Chopped salads are a favourite in our households because they are quick and easy to make and most importantly delicious. This is a salad that often appeals to salad resistant kid and also toddlers because it’s texture is very different to eating the vegetables in their whole form. My daughter actually calls this ‘baby food’ salad because I often gave it to them when they were little (before they loved whole salads like they do now).
Why is it healthy?
Broccoli and cauliflower both belong to the family of vegetables known as brassicas. They possess compounds that support both phases of liver detoxification (including the specific enzyme systems that processes known carcinogens).
Carrot, garlic, avocado, parsley, coriander also support liver detoxification pathways. Pomegranate is a rich source of antioxidants. The fats in the avocado and tahini are anti-inflammatory and help to support the absorption of fat soluble vitamins.
Makes enough for 4 side servings
1 heaped cup of raw cauliflower florets and stems
1 heaped cup of raw broccoli florets and stems
1 large raw carrot, roughly chopped
Large handful of parsley or coriander leaves
