Microgreen Salad - Ultimate Reset Recipe

This is a salad that has come to be one of my FAVORITES of this Ultimate Reset journey.  I never thought having a good "salad" recipe was very important.  I'm usually one that just dumps whatever I have into my salad and call then call it a day!  But I've got to say, this one is DELICIOUS!  When I look at a good salad, I usually think there is one thing that really sets it apart…for this salad, it's the toasted raw pumpkin seeds that I put on it (Oh, and the homemade dressing!).

Ultimate Reset RecipeMicrogreen Salad*
3 cups baby salad greens
1/4 medium carrot, shredded
1/2 medium cucumber, chopped
1/2 medium red bell pepper, sliced
1/4 cup sprouts (like radish, alfalfa, or broccoli)
1/2 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup chopped jicama
1 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro (optional)

Add 1/4 cup to a 1/3 cup Toasted Pumpkin Seeds to the salad.

Add 2 Tbsp of dressing of your choice.  (My favorite is the Ginger-Sesame-Miso salad dressing)

Combine everything together in a large bowl and toss gently to blend!
