Super Detox Salad

I’ve been feeling a little on the slow side after a long Swedish winter so I have been putting myself through a gentle detox to help put the spring back in my step. This tasty salad is fantastically balanced as a stand alone meal or as a side dish on the family table.



  • 1 large zucchini (as straight as possible)
  • 1 large carrot (as straight as possible)
  • 1-2 cups of mixed salad leaves
  • 1 small box of chickpeas (rinse well)
  • 1 finely chopped spring onion


  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini paste
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon tamari sauce
  • Fresh herbs finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Mix together all the dressing ingredients in a large salad bowl
  2. Spiralize both the zucchini and the carrot and add to the salad bowl (if you don’t have a spiraliser, you can use a peeler to shave ribbons or a julienne peeler to make long thin vegetable strips).
  3. Rinse the chickpeas and add to the salad bowl along with the chopped spring onions and mixed leaves.
  4. Mix well and serve as a side or as a stand alone meal.
