Super Green Salad

This recipe is for all of you who cursed me yesterday when I posted that chocolate cake. This salad is loaded with healthy ingredients.

Super Green Salad
inspired by this recipe by Teresa Cutter

1 large and full stalk of broccoli, finely chopped ( including stalk which has already been trimmed of rough outer layer)
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 large bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp dried mint (or a large handful of chopped fresh mint)
1/2 avocado,chopped
handful of pumpkin seeds
2 handfuls of candied or regular walnuts
4 handfuls baby spinach

Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 Tbsp lemon infused extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp blueberry balsamic
1 tsp honey
small clove garlic minced
handful raisins
generous amount of freshly ground pepper
sea salt to taste

1. Combine all salad ingredients in a bowl.
2. Whisk together dressing ingredients
3. Pour dressing over salad and mix well to combine.

This salad is great for a potluck because you can safely dress the salad before you go,and it still comes out great. If you are going to do this, you may want to add the seeds and nuts after you get there to maintain the crunch.
