Green Nori Salad

This Green Nori Salad is simple, nutritious, and filled with flavour.

Lettuce has been called ‘the perfect weight loss food’ and ‘rabbit food’ but it is so much more. With amazing healing benefits and 20% protein by calories, it could be called ‘gorilla food’ instead.  It is low in calories and high in fiber and cellulose. It is heart-healthy and has a great ratio of omega-3 fatty acids.  Lettuce is a great alkaline-forming food that is low on the glycemic index and is great for this Green Nori Salad.

Nori seaweed is thin,  and its oily iridescence reflects the colours of the rainbow. This is the most popular Seaweed for eating, both historically and today. We mostly know it from eating Maki Sushi.

Nori is high in protein, contains carbohydrates and almost no fat. It is rich in vitamins A, B2, niacin, B12, plus C and D.

It comes in sheets in packages or dried granules that can be sprinkled on food either during cooking or at the table.

Lemons’ health benefits are immense.  To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.

WHO recognizes that Onions help relieve symptoms such as coughs, congestion asthma, and respiratory infections. Onions are full of protective phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, quercetin (an important flavonoid), chromium, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients.

Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.

Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer.  If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily?  Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing.  Do not use for cooking.  It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage.  Olive oil has so many health benefits I include some every day when I eat my salad. Make sure you are using real olive oil. Have you heard of the olive oil fraud? Find out Which Olive Oil to Buy.

  1. Great recipe, I personally don’t digest raw onion very well so I omitted it and added in cucumber which was lovely. The salad has a really subtle nutty flavour.
