Rainbow Salad Bowl with Smashed Avocado

Rainbow Salad Bowl with Smashed Avocado Thrive Health & Nutrition Magazine

Rainbow Salad Bowl with Smashed Avocado made with the colours of Spring, and packed with healthy greens.

Deemed to be one of the worlds healthiest foods – purple cabbage is packed with fiber. A 1-cup serving of chopped purple cabbage provides 2 grams of fiber. it’s also high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A and potassium too.

(Makes 2 bowls)
1/2 cucumber, cut into matchsticks
1/3 broccoli, chopped
handful of dark greens (dark cabbage or any other greens, baby spinach maybe)
1/4 purple cabbage, shredded
small handful of sugar snap peas
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
2 tablespoons china rose radish sprouts, or any other sprout.
(If you don’t like sprouts, top with almonds, pistachios or pumpkin seeds instead to give a crunch.)
1/3 red onion, finely chopped
1 avocado
sea salt

How to make it…
Steam the broccoli in a small saucepan, for about 5-6minutes. Once it is cooked, immediately rinse with cold water. Chop the cucumber into matchsticks, shred the purple cabbage and de-seed the pomegranate. The sprouts need to be washed and trimmed too. Also finely chop the red onion and set aside. In a small bowl, smash up the avocado with a fork and add the chopped red onion and a pinch of sea salt. Arrange the all the ingredients in a large bowl and enjoy with fresh lemon or lime juice.
