Between the kale, goji berries, beets, and oranges, every bite of this gorgeous salad has about a year’s worth of antioxidants, vitamins, and phytonutrients. But the flavors are even more powerful than the health benefits. And while this salad is to-die-for delicious by itself, when we dress it with orange juice and a hint of sesame oil, it reaches a whole new level. You’ve got to try this one.

Note: this recipe has no exact measurements – go with your gut!

Ingredients

Salad - ratio is up to you!
  • Shredded cabbage
  • Chopped kale
  • Grated carrots
  • Sliced golden beets
  • Orange slices
  • Green onions
  • Goji berries
  • Edamame
  • Raw raw cashews
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Orange juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • Sea salt
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions

  1. As mentioned, this recipe has no measurements – use your own judgment. In a large bowl, add the shredded cabbage with some finely-chopped kale and grated carrots. This is your base.
  2. Next, gather all the other ingredients and chop them if needed. Beets are great if sliced in thin half-circles, the green onions can be sliced, the orange should be peeled and pulled into wedges. Everything else can simply be thrown into the salad whole. Add a handful of each and toss until you have the perfect mix of ingredients.
  3. Make the dressing with the juice of one orange, 1-2 teaspoons of sesame oil, and sea salt (don’t skimp on salt – it adds a lot here). Pour this over the salad and toss until well mixed. Then, divide the salad into serving bowls and sprinkle a few sesame seeds over top. Yum!

Food also has tremendous power to do good in our lives. When we make the simple choice to eat real ingredients, food works to support our health rather than destroy it. The natural compounds in whole foods strengthen our blood vessels, zap damaging free radicals, brighten our moods, and give us energy that lasts all day. Real food has real power, and the fact that these ingredients are the freshest and most delicious substances on the planet makes it seem all the more absurd that we would ever choose to eat anything else.
