Recipe: Super Simple Salad
As our garden was
winding down and the
last of our arugula came inside, I celebrated
the harvest by creating a salad that has since
become a personal favorite. It makes a
perfect dinner salad for me, being a light way
to end another ultimately healthy day! See
how you like it.
Few handfuls arugula
or assorted baby greens
Generous handful sunflower sprouts
Slices of fresh leeks and/or red onion
Few small cauliflower florettes
Favorite salad dressing
2 T hemp seeds
2 T dulse
Wash, rinse, and towel
dry greens. Place in a
preferably shallow salad bowl. Add sprouts,
leeks, onion, hemp seed, cauliflower and dulse.
Drizzle with a healthy salad dressing or fresh
lemon juice. For variety, add slices of bell pepper,
grated carrot or chopped celery. Substitute
ingredients according to availability and personal
taste. Customize to suit your tastebuds!
Note: According to raw
foodist David Wolfe.
"...arugula is a cruciferous, green leafy
vegetable that has a spicey flavor...It is
highly alkaline and neutralizes acidic waste
products throughout the blood and lymphatic
system. It is high in sulfur and vitamin A.

is an excellent skin cleanser and liver
