Lettuce salad is a favorite high raw food salad with Mango Lettuce Salad being my all time favorite. I tend to go the raw food way once in a while to detox the body. Detox foods or high raw food help to cleanse the system and its good to rest our system once every few days. Not to mention they also aid weight loss. 🙂
I used what I had in the fridge to make myself a light and filling salad. I like the smoky flavor of roasted bell peppers and they make a great addition to today’s lettuce salad. Avocado provides the healthy fat and pomegranate is rich is antioxidants.
If you are looking to detox your system or lose weight with healthy food then hop over to check out some raw food recipes that I have blogged earlier.
Lettuce Salad Recipe
Roast one red bell pepper, one green bell pepper and one yellow bell pepper. Cool and peel the charred skin and chop. Place in a large salad bowl. Peel and slice a cucumber, add to the bowl. Peel, cut an avocado into pieces and add to the bowl. Peel, slice a red onion and add to the bowl. Wash, pat dry a head of iceberg lettuce and tear into bite sized pieces and add.
