Make the ultimate gut-friendly, green summer salad. It has everything you need to feel great – apple cider vinegar for beneficial bacteria; bitter green leaves for liver and digestion support; healthy fats in olive oil and avocados plus parmesan and nuts for protein. And it tastes good too!
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp live apple cider vinegar
Sea salt and black pepper
2-3 large handfuls rocket, watercress or baby spinach (or a mixture of leaves)
½ cucumber, cut into chunks
½ avocado, chopped into small chunks
2 tbsp finely-chopped soft herbs (mint, dill, flat leaf parsley and/or coriander would all work well)
2 tbsp Parmesan shavings
2 tbsp pine nuts or walnuts
1. To make the dressing, mix together the olive oil and apple cider vinegar and season with sea salt and black pepper.
2. Place the salad leaves in a bowl and toss them in the dressing.
3. Add the cucumber, avocado and soft herbs to the leaves and mix gently.
4. Sprinkle with Parmesan shavings, pine nuts or walnuts and serve.
