Alkaline Diet Recipe: Summer Salad with Citrus Dressing


Summer Salad with Citrus DressingLast time, I shared the 10 unusual suspects – foods you might think are healthy, but are actually anything but!

One common misconception is that you need foods with probiotics (yogurt, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, etc.) to keep your gut healthy, but those foods are highly acidic because the fermentation process creates sugar, yeast, and even alcohol.

You’re much better off taking a good-quality probiotic supplement and eating plenty of leafy green veggies. That’s why salads like this make a great summer dinner or lunch.

You’re going to love this dressing. You can make a bigger batch of it and use it throughout the week for salads and quinoa bowls.

Let me know what you think over on Facebook!
