Know your detox cycle! Your body’s detox cycle starts from the time of your last meal to about 8-10 hours later. If you eat late at night, your body never has a chance to detox. Eat dinner early and do your best to stop eating after dinner. This will give you a long “fasting” time allowing for a proper digestion and detox cycle.*
Fresh Salad Recipe #8 Green Salad with Serrano Ham and Lemon Vinaigrette
2 lemons, peeled and seeded
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbs. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 to 8 Tbs. sherry wine vinegar
2 heads romaine, chopped
2 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 lb. serrano ham, thinly sliced
1/3 cup black and green olives
1. To make the vinaigrette, in a blender or food processor, combine the lemons, garlic, paprika, cumin and salt and pulse to puree. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil and vinegar, processing until fully incorporated.
Place the lettuce in a bowl. Drizzle on just enough of the vinaigrette to coat, toss well and transfer to a platter. Top with the eggs, onions, ham and olives. Spoon the rest of the vinaigrette on top. Serves 4.
