So super simple! Use what you have…everything except the kitchen sink. 🙂
Mixed greens – 1 C per person
Roasted squash, zucchini, onions, eggplant (rough chop) ¼ – ½ C per person
Cannellini beans ¼ C per person
Grilled chicken thighs (shredded) 1 per person
Prosciutto (cut in strips) 1 slice per person
Grape tomatoes (Halved) ¼ C per person

Wisk together and pour over salad
There is no right or wrong way to make a salad. Enjoy endless combinations and be creative. Just remember the goal is to choose alkaline forming foods at a ratio of 80% alkaline/20% acidic for detox or repair phases and 60% alkaline/40% acidic for maintenance.
