1 pack of frozen corn

1-2 cups thin sliced radishes
3 shredded carrots
1/2 red onion
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1/2 cup of healthy oil
1-2 garlic cloves
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp spirulina

refrigerate veggies while making the dressing
put all ingredients for dressing in small blender or food processor, and blend until smooth

-a delicious and decadent addition is mixing in some probiotic organic sour cream. For vegans try blended cashew cream! The starting photo is with the cream, the one below is without.
-I used 1/2 avocado oil and 1/2 coconut oil. I ran out of avocado oil :). The coconut changes the texture to be more dry and taste to be more coconut flavor, but still tasty.
-Should keep well in the fridge for at least 3-4 days
Salad Super Stars-
Cilantro- well known to remove heavy metals from the body including arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, lead, and mercury.
Unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar- amazing for gut health, is a probiotic and prebiotic, may help balance acidity in the body, encourage lymphatic drainage and enhance circulation
Radish- gentle liver cleanse, blood purification
Spirulina- very nutrient dense, energizing, and helps remove heavy metals especially arsenic. ALWAYS get things like spirulina from a reputable dealer as this product if untested can be contaminated and cause serious illness
