The Mega Salad

March 16, 2018

WRITTEN BY: Kelly + Erinn

What is so wonderful about making salads is the more you make them, the more you get comfortable with experimenting and discovering new favorite flavors, and the more confidence you’ll gain every day. Trust us, salads are addictive. Treat this recipe like a guideline; substitute whatever nuts, seeds or sprouts are your faves.

Note: Sprinkling the sea salt after the lime juice and avocado oil is an important step
and helps to make the greens taste more fresh and vibrant. The salt will stick to the
leaves perfectly when you follow the steps.
