This is a great, nutrient dense, "base salad" recipe that I use often. It's ingredients will help cleanse your gut and support your body’s detox pathways while keep you feeling full and satisfied! You will also get a nice boost of healthy fats from the avocado, olive oil, and sunflower seeds. Great on its own as a side salad or add almost any choice of clean protein on top for an entree salad. I like grilled or sauteed organic chicken breast, wild caught salmon, or boiled wild caught shrimp.
