Post-Holiday Detox Salad (vegan)

Ali Segersten Nov 29, 2014

Indulge a little too much during the holidays? Feeling the need to cleanse and reset? Drinking too much alcohol, eating a lot of sugary foods, and just eating too much food in general can tax your detoxification pathways. If you are not detoxing properly, you can end up with lowered energy, increased pain in the body, poor circulation, and sluggish digestion.

By consuming this salad, which is rich in plant-based chemicals that promote detoxification, you can relieve some of the unwanted symptoms of a holiday hangover and begin to regain balance. In fact, if you include raw plant foods such as kale, cabbage, arugula, broccoli, collards, ginger, pomegranates, lemons and limes, blueberries, cranberries, black currants, and raspberries in your daily diet (try green smoothies, fresh juices, and big salads), you will find that indulging in (healthy) holiday treats once in a while will be easier for your body to handle. Hint, hint….try serving this salad at your next holiday gathering!


Wow, this salad does look and sound absolutely delicious, Ali! The health bennies are a very nice bonus. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Shirley! :)

This salad looks like lovely. I could eat it anytime!

I had this salad today and it was fantastic. Someone I work with - a devotee to the elimination diet and Ali's recipes - made it right after thanksgiving. She brought some to me and I will be buying the ingredients for a luncheon on Friday! The flavors are light and the pomegranate adds a nice taste and crunch!

I love everything about this salad. I've made it twice just this week, and am making it again in a few days for my sister. My husband and I both loved it, as well as my 14-year old son. I used tahini in the dressing.

Thank you for the feedback! So glad you and your family enjoyed it. :)

Thank you for the feedback! I agree, the pomegranate adds such a nice crunch and flavor. :)

Thanks Kristie! :)

You are going to love this nutritious raw kale slaw. It's full of detoxification and antioxidant compounds, and just bursting with the fresh, bright flavors of basil, mint, and cilantro. All tossed in a slightly spicy and gingery, creamy almond butter dressing. What I love about this salad is that it lasts up to 5 days in the refrigerator!

Grapefruit, Radish, Cabbage Salad

For the past few months, citrus and cabbage have become some of my favorite two foods! This scrumptious salad combines them both. I use napa cabbage which is a very mild, tender cabbage. It is also a favorite vegetable of our children. My oldest daughter likes to pack napa cabbage in her lunch!
