Alkaline Salad

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup sauerkraut
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 sheet nori
  • Handful raw pumpkin seeds

Lemon/Turmeric Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon Raw Tahini
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon organic pumpkin seed oil
  • 1 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 of a lemon juiced
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 5 dashes peppercorn blend
  • 3 dashes himalayan sea salt

Directions:

Chop cucumber and avocado into cubes. Fold nori sheet 5 times and cut, then give a nice chop to make smaller pieces. Combine in a bowl with arugula, sauerkraut, and pumpkin seeds.

Whisk dressing ingredients together and taste. Adjust spices if necessary to your liking, and pour on top of salad. NOTE: It is a thicker dressing, sort of like an aioli. Add more lemon if you want. Serve and enjoy.

**Lemons help alkalize the blood and raise the pH of body tissues.

**Raw pumpkin seeds are loaded with fiber and help prevent constipation.

**Nori has anti-inflammatory properties and is high in minerals.
