Gwyneth Paltrow’s Cleansing Salad

Inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s go to salad during her recent GOOP cleanse, I’ve added a new edition to my repertoire of to die for healthy salads. This is the most delicious and wonderfully healthy salad. It works as an excellent base to add whichever protein you like, from chicken or turkey to salmon or tofu. I’ve made a couple of adjustments to the original recipe, added a couple of extra greens, adjusted the dressing and swapped the grilled zucchini for grated raw zucchini. . .

Above all, if it’s working for a body like Gwyneth’s, whose to argue? xx
