Useful tips for Detox Salad

This salad is pretty hard to screw up.

Be super careful when you’re chopping all the ingredients. The cabbage, especially, can be a doozy if you’re not careful.

To keep the raisins and sunflower seeds from getting soggy, top salad with them right before serving.

The Vitamix Pro 750 (with tamper) is what I used to chop all the ingredients. Still took a bit of time, but was certainly easier and safer than hand-chopping everything.
