  • Recipe for Green Carrot Salad with Ginger Vinaigrette

This is a delicious and healthy power salad that can be eaten any time of the day. The combination of ingredients makes this meal a superfood! This salad will help boost your energy, stimulate your fat burning potential, and increase your immune system.  I highly recommend using organic ingredients for greater health benefits.

* It is best to start with the vinaigrette to allow the flavors to blend together. The longer, the better.


Preparation time:  +/- 30 minutes


Calories Per Serving

+/- 400/ Portion with walnuts

+/- 330/ Portion with sesame seeds


Ginger Vinaigrette Ingredients:

2 tbsp of olive oil or sesame oil

1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tbsp of orange juice

2 tbsp of honey

1 minced garlic clove

1 tsp of minced fresh ginger

1/2 tsp of turmeric

A pinch of flaked cayenne red pepper

A pinch of paprika

A dash of salt and pepper



Mix all the ingredients in a mason jar and set aside.


Green Carrot salad Ingredients:

4 medium carrots

2 chopped green onions

1/2 lemon zest

1 cup of grilled walnuts (For more protein) Or – 1 Tbsp of sesame seeds

1/2 cup Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Chia Seeds (optional)



Take 2 carrots and cut them julienne style ( cut into long thin strips), then take the other 2 and grate them in a large bowl.  Mix the carrots, green onions, walnuts, cilantro and the lemon zest.

Pour the vinaigrette in the salad, mix all of the ingredients and serve on a bed of arugula or baby spinach. You can add a bit of chia seeds if you wish. That recipe compliments any fish, meat or even quinoa.
