Did you know radishes are known for their anti bacterial and anti fungal properties?
They are an excellent source of riboflavin, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, copper, manganese; contain dietary fiber, folate, vitamin C and potassium…..Radishes are very good for the liver and stomach. They help to detox and purify blood and they stimulate digestion.
Also Asparagus can be eaten raw. One raw asparagus a day (during the season, which is now) support kidneys function and help to detox.
The best thing is green asparagus does not require peeling. Here is a crunchy and tasty salad I made today – detox deluxe in almost no time!
What to buy
6 red radishes
6 green asparagus
10 green almonds
1 small gem lettuce or Boston head
20 g mixed herbs (rocket, dill, parsley, spring onion, chervil, basil…)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon herb oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Orange salt (find how to make it below)
How to Make It
Wash radishes, asparagus, lettuce and herbs and pat dry. Slice the radish and asparagus. Pick the herbs and lettuce. Open the almond shells and release the young and tender nut. Cut them into halves.
Toss all ingredients with lemon juice and olive oil. Arrange on plates and sprinkle with herb oil and orange salt.
I use organic orange, grate the skin off with a microplane grater and mix with equal amount of natural rock salt. Air dry for around one day and it is ready to use. Keep the salt in an airtight container and you have a lovely ingredient on hand to add some citrus flavor to a dish.
