Whole Foods Detox Salad

By • May 22, 2013 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: This is a recreation of my favorite Whole Foods salad. The detox salad. Bursting with colour and flavor, it is one nutritious powerhouse. The recipe makes a lot so you can enjoy packing fast and easy lunches throughout the week. It's a great salad that can be customized to fit your own tastes.Jennifer Trennum

Makes 8 cups

  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 2 1/2 cups of roughly cut cauliflower florets
  • 3 large carrots, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cups chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dired currants
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Place the broccoli florets into a food processor and pulse until chopped very fine. Empty out into a large bowl.
  2. Do the same with the cauliflower florets. Depending on the size of your food processor you may have to work in batches.
  3. Next add the carrots and pulse until finely chopped and add to the bowl along with the broccoli and cauliflower. Give it a good stir to mix everything together.
  4. Stir in the parsley, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins and currants. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. To store: keep refrigerated in a tightly sealed container. I like to keep it in a big sealed glass container because I find that the glass keeps the salad fresher than plastic.

Looks amazing! I hate raisins though, do you think I could replace the raisins and currants for chopped black olives or black beans?

Absolutley you can! If you are going to substitute chopped olives, just be sure to be careful adding the salt; you may not need as much of it as the olives tend to be salty. Taste as you go. Let me know how it turns out! I'd love to hear!

I often enjoy that salad at WF! I like it over quinoa and then add a small drizzle of olive oil. Great to have a framework to make it!

Great to hear! I'm going to have some over quinoa the next time I make it. It never occurred to me to try that before. Thanks!
