Sometimes it’s very tough to stay away from food when you are a food blogger or a foodie. 😛 So I would personally recommend having a healthy bowl of salad for one meal and detoxify the toxins out of your body and cleanse your system. A perfect bowl of green salad- healthy, fresh, and satisfying bowl can make a great meal. This salad is so delicious, simple, and perfect to have for brunch, lunch, snack, or dinner. 🙂
Include your favorite protein to balance the meal and enjoy the wholesome healthy bowl of green salad. Whenever I prepare salad I try to keep it as simple as that to pair with grilled fish or chicken breast. Top it with some roasted flaxseeds for the perfect crunchiness.
My healthy and fresh bowl of green salad or shades of green 😀 includes fresh crunchy lettuce leaves, creamy soft avocado, crunchy cucumber, fresh parsley, and sweet cherry tomato topped with olive oil, a dash of lemon, crushed basil, roasted flaxseeds, sea salt, and feta cheese.
Any lettuce you like will do here, but for the perfect crunchiness, I would suggest you get Romaine lettuce. Try getting the greens which are seasonal to get the most benefit out of the salad.
- 6 Romaine lettuce leaves (washed and chopped)
- 1 Avocado, peeled and sliced
- 1 Cucumber, small (sliced)
- 8-10 Cheery tomatoes, cut into halves
- ½ Cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 Tsp olive oil
- 1 Tsp roasted flaxseeds
- 1 Tsp crushed basil leaves
- Sea salt, as required
In a large bowl, take all the greens and cherry tomatoes. Add lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, crushed basil leaves, feta cheese and toss well. Top with roasted flaxseeds and serve.
