Beetroot Detox Salad with Sun Butter

Using only a few ingredients this salad is yummo! The beet factor cleanses the kidney's and builds the blood. The kale provides a huge hit of minerals and iron and the cabbage helps to eliminate the nasties in the gut. Not to mention the delicious sun butter dressing that I am addicted to that adds a little protein and flavour. A great raw detox salad option.


3 large beets, peeled and shredded {makes 2-3 cups}

1/2 head green cabbage, finely chopped {makes about 2 cups}

1 bunch dinosaur kale, de-stemmed and shredded {makes about 2 cups}
