Chopped Vegetable Salad + Garlic Dressing

Salad

  • 2 cups English cucumbers, chopped
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small orange or red bell pepper, chopped
  • handful grape tomatoes, halved or quarted
  • 2 – 3 scallions, sliced

Garlic Dressing

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • juice of one medium lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard or stoneground
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons water
  • himalayan salt to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper or lemon pepper to taste

In a small bowl combine the dressing ingredients and mix well, set aside.

Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss gently to coat.

Serve salad on a bed of leafy greens, whole grain pasta or enjoy as is.

Notes:

To make this a 100% alkalizing salad, squeeze lemon and add a sprinkle of cumin….or combine grated ginger and the juice of one orange…so fresh and good!

This salad is a great place to add a sprinkle of sunflower seeds or pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
