Chakra Salad


Eating colorful foods will boost your phyto-nutrient quotient. And anyway, who doesn't love a happy meal. Bringing a color spectrum to your plate will heighten your appreciation of every bite and will inspire you to shop with your eyes the next time you hit the grocery.

We hope you enjoy this colorful, full of flavor, simple to make Chakra salad. Feel inspired to add it to your list of fave recipes. We added a spicy option to our ingredient list, but this salad is so good with or without the extra kick.


1 small head or half a head of large green cabbage
1 large purple or red rainbow carrot
handful of fresh mint
handful of fresh basil
Spicy Chakri Mix (optional from Trader Joe's)
olive oil
white balsamic vinegar
fresh lime juice
Braggs liquid aminos
sea salt

Finely shred green cabbage and place it in a deep bowl. Add grated rainbow carrot. Chiffonade fresh mint and basil adding it to salad. Pour a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil over the salad. Add white balsamic vinegar to taste. Squeeze in the juice of one lime. Spray Braggs liquid aminos a few spritzes at a time over the salad. Sprinkle the mixture with sea salt to taste. Toss the salad. Taste. Add any of the dressing ingredients desired to balance out your salad, bringing it to your preferred level of intensity. For a kick, sprinkle your salad with the Spicy Chakri Mix just before serving. Another optional version would be to add dry roasted peanuts instead of the spicy mix. Enjoy your Chakra salad.
