It can take a long time to chew a big salad, particularly when it contains hard vegetables such as carrots and broccoli. Many times, folks are in a hurry and simply do not chew the produce well. If we do not crack open the cell wall of the food, we cannot retrieve the good nutrition inside. Chopping the salad into tiny pieces gives you a head start on chewing, and offers a great taste, as the flavors have already started to mingle from the processing.
1 ¾ cups broccoli florets, cut in chunks
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 radishes, cut in half
2 large carrots, peeled, cut in chunks
¼ cup walnuts
¼ cup pecans
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1.5 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice
2. Process very briefly.
3. Add remaining lettuce and briefly process until mixture is chopped fine, yet still crunchy.
4. Pulsing the machine may give best results, so the perfect texture is achieved.
