This beet and carrot salad with citrus vinaigrette is an amazing liver cleansing summer salad. The orange, honey, garlic, and Dijon vinaigrette is the perfect light and refreshing dressing for this beetroot and carrot salad.
The natural sweetness from the fresh-squeezed orange juice and honey blends into a beautiful creamy citrus vinaigrette with cold-pressed liquid coconut oil.
The addition of basmati rice and chickpeas turns this beet and carrot salad with feta into a light dinner meal or a side summer salad to complement BBQ food.
But really you can enjoy this beetroot and carrot salad any time of the year!
I love to prep healthy chickpea buddha bowl lunches with this beetroot and carrot salad.
This is also a great liver cleansing salad for liver detox and a sluggish gallbladder as rocket greens are bitter greens which help to cleanse the liver while beetroot is one of the best gallbladder cleansing superfoods.
A healthy liver and gallbladder are crucial for daily detoxification of the body and enjoying this summer salad recipe with alfalfa sprouts, rocket, beets, and carrots are nothing short of nutritious.
For me, a delicious healthy salad is all about the dressing and this honey citrus vinaigrette is another one of my favorite zesty and naturally sweet summer salad dressing
