Carrot Ginger Detox Salad


    For the salad

    • 1-2 heads of broccoli
    • 3 carrots shredded
    • 2 cups cooked quinoa

    For the dressing

    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • 2 T toasted sesame oil
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup mirin
    • 1 T soy sauce or Bragg's Aminos (for GF) (I used organic SanJ shoyu )
    • 2 tsp fresh grated ginger
    • salt to taste


    1. Steam the broccoli. I used a rice cooker/steamer to do this. 
    2. In a sauce pan , cook the quinoa according to the package instructions.  I already had some quinoa in my fridge.  We always have some kind of grain in the fridge to make our meals stretch longer. 
    3. While the broccoli is steaming and the quinoa is cooking, throw all the ingredients together for the dressing. 
    4. Whisk them in a small bowl
    5. Once the quinoa and broccoli are done throw everything together in one big bowl .


    Recipe Notes

    This should last at least a week in the fridge. I think it tastes great hot or cold. I got about 4-5 servings out of my batch. Enjoy!
