Summer Salads

Green vegetables are the food most missing in modern diets. Nutritionally, greens

are very high in calcium (120 -190 mg per cup!) They’re also high in magnesium,

iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and they are a power house for Vitamin A, C, E

and K. Believe it or not, they are also crammed high with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll

and many other micro-nutrients and phyto-chemicals – you just can’t get any better

than this. Take a look at the following two recipes to help move you into a

sensational summer!

Sensational Summer Salad

For a summer snack that will cleanse the kidneys and help the body to unload toxic

wastes from the blood, use the following high powered recipe.

1/2 cup of watercress

1/2 cup of dandelion greens

1/2 cup of arugula

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 tsp grated ginger

pinch of Sea Salt

Mix washed greens together.

Stir lemon juice and ginger.

Pour over greens.

Season with salt.

1/4 cup red onions, finely chopped

2.25 ounces sliced black olives

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
