Power-Boost Salad...


OK here it is, a new favorite- a great way to add those dark, nutrient packed veggies to your diet! When people talk about "eating the rainbow" to benefit from all the different vitamins and minerals found in the different colors of fruits and veggies, this salad would be on the top of the "rainbow list!" Aren't the colors beautiful?? This will be on my table ALL the time this winter. It is a great nutrient dense, powerhouse salad that will be sure to leave your insides, your taste buds, and your tummy all asking for more! Some of the veggies used in this salad, such as radicchio and kale, can have more of a bitter taste to them, but add the sweet carrots and mapley mild dressing and it's a beautiful combination! Give it a go!

Ingredients: (they are all approximations, use what you have on hand!)
1 crown broccoli, chopped
2-3 large carrots, chopped
2-3 handfuls chopped kale
1/4 wedge radicchio, chopped
1/4 wedge red cabbage, chopped
4-5 stalks celery, chopped
1 handful dried cranberries
1 handful dry roasted almonds

Dressing:
4 TBSP olive oil
2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp real maple syrup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp sea salt
