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.

2 cups tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup red onions, finely chopped

2.25 ounces sliced black olives

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
