The Ultimate Beauty Salad

June 27, 2011

Last week I had a great time hanging out with a good friend, and she was game to try one of my salads. I warned her it would be one of the best salads she’d ever had. We got together a bunch of stellar ingredients, and while making it I realized that the salad was packed full of veggies that offer the amazing beauty minerals that I have been writing about recently. Below is a list of the ingredients in the salad and the nutrients they offer to optimize your beauty. Besides being good for you this salad was lip-smacking good! Have fun experimenting and make your own version using some of the foods rich in beauty minerals listed in previous posts. – XoXo Raw Girl

To prepare, wash all veggies thoroughly. Wash mixed greens and arugula and toss together in a large salad bowl. Chop up green and yellow squash, red bell peppers, and olives.  Add toppings to greens, pour on olive oil, add in sea salt and curry, and squeeze the wedge of lemon. Massage the veggies with your hands for a few minutes. Add in a couple teaspoons of nutritional yeast and toss together. Use a veggie grater to finely grate beets on top, sprinkle in some pumpkin seeds, and add in fennel leaves for decoration. Enjoy!
