Green Goddess Salad topped with Almonds

July 31, 2012

Author Notes: This gorgeous goddess salad was inspired by a beautiful group of green veggies sitting in my fridge. I thought to myself, now how can I make these flavors come together for a sexy and light lunchtime salad? Lightly steamed cancer-fighting greens are placed atop of a bed of spicy arugula greens, sprinkled with colorful antioxidants, along with protein and nutrient-rich almonds.HealthyTummy

Serves: 2


  • 1 cup Fresh organic arugula greens
  • 1/2 cup Lightly steamed organic broccoli
  • 1/2 cup Lightly steamed and halved Brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup Halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful Raw almonds
In This Recipe


  1. On your bed of arugula, gently place steamed broccoli pieces (I like to steam under 5-6min) and halved Brussels sprouts. Sprinkle in your raw almonds and top with halved cherry tomatoes. Now it's time to dress your salad!
  2. No one likes a naked salad, even if you're trying to save on calories. Instead, opt for a homemade dressing using fresh ingredients. Goddess Dressing: whisk together 1 tbsp of olive oil with the juice from 1/2 a lemon until creamy. Add a dash of sea salt.
