Spring Detox Salad


By Chef Barb Sheldon, MA, Atrium’s Head of Wellness

A fresh, liver-loving spring salad is a great way to create a sense of renewal in your body, supporting the detoxification process and allowing nutrients from brightly coloured plants to bring you more energy and clarity!



  • 1 cup purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup green onion, sliced finely
  • 1 red pepper, chopped thinly
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 beet root, shredded
  • 1 green apple, sliced in matchsticks
  • 1 small bunch of mint, chopped finely
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1 small bunch parsley, chopped finely
  • 1 small bunch fresh basil, chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup almonds, raw and chopped


  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 tsp raw honey, to taste
  • Sea salt and fresh pepper, to taste


All ingredients above contribute to the detoxification systems in your body, and many are anti-microbial and support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

  • Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Only dress the amount you are willing to eat immediately, otherwise store the dressing in a mason jar in the fridge and shake to combine when needed.
  • Top with your favourite protein!
