  • 1/2 cucumber cut into quarters lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 small bunch green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 firm ripe avocado diced
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons raw sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons raw shelled pumpkin seeds pepitas

For the detox dressing:

  • Juice of 2 lemons strained to remove seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1/2 cup avocado or olive oil
  • pinch dry mustard powder
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped


  • Toss arugula with the shredded and sliced veggies. Sprinkle the nuts and seeds over the top.

To prepare dressing:

  • place the lemon juice and honey in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Shake to dissolve the honey.
  • Add the oil, mustard powder, salt and pepper.
  • Replace lid and shake vigorously until well-combined. Add the parsley and shake again.
  • Pour some of the dressing over the salad and gently toss to coat it lightly. (There will be leftover dressing.)
  • Serve and pass extra dressing alongside if needed.
