Low-Carb, Salads, Side Dishes

Clean Eating Salad

September 30, 2016

I was on a 21 day whole body cleanse, and I could not have dairy, gluten, carbs, caffeine, sugar, and so much more!  You can imagine how hard it is to eat when you have these many restrictions.  I was playing with veggies, and came up with this clean salad that tasted pretty good.



  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 large container of heirloom cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 cucumber with the skin off and chopped
  • 1 avocado chopped
  • Dijon mustard vinaigrette (see below)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Dijon Vinaigrette Recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon campaign vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil


Although I think the directions speak for themselves, here you go…

  1. Make the vinaigrette and set aside.
  2. Chop all the veggies and place in bowl.
  3. Add the vinaigrette and stir.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I like to use either sea salt or Himalayan salt.
