The photo I took of the salad, just before people get served, does not do justice. I made it for Christmas dinner and it was delish. People loved the made up dressing I made to go with it as well.

Salads do not have to be boring and look the same. Dressings do not have to come from a store to taste great. This salad is LOADED with nourishing nutrient dense macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). These nutrients, once absorbed in the body, provide us with energy that allow us to take on life and perform with joy.

Putting The Salad Together

Here are the ingredients of this colorful and delish salad. Click the link for each food to learn about the amazing nutrition, especially the micronutrients, each one provides. You will appreciate the power of eating unprocessed foods.

Literally, it took a few minutes to put all this together. I used my food processor to shred beets, jicama, and carrots–in seconds, done! As long as you don’t mix the dressing with it, you can make in large quantity, and eat for a few days.


  • Greek yogurt, plain, 0% fat
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • Turmeric
  • Black pepper
  • Cardamom
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Mustard seeds
  • Dijon mustard (no sugar added)
  • Himalayan salt

A word of caution about greek yogurt. Most people stopped producing the enzymes that break down lactose by age of 4–hence, it can become toxic and not only build digestive issues but also mucus. I am able to tolerate a very small amount of dairy. And I cannot consume it daily either. Once in a while,  I do plain greek yogurt or goat’s milk kefir or goat’s milk or unpasteurized raw grass fed cheese for dairy.

Greek yogurt makes this recipe creamy. Nonetheless, it is easy enough to exclude it and it tastes great. I invite you to be experimental. Don’t shy away from playing with different seasonings. You will be surprised and pleased 🙂

Enjoy it!
