Alkaline Diet Recipe: Spinach and Pomegranate Salad with Tarragon Lemon Dressing


If you suffer from any digestive complaints, whether occasionally, or on a regular basis, you need to stop what you’re doing and read my last post about the 5 ways ACID is the root cause of all digestive issues.


Today’s recipe is going to be really healing for the entire digestive tract from the esophagus and any acid reflux you might have experienced, all the way to preventing constipation. And it’s no coincidence that it’s also highly alkaline. The more alkaline a food is, the more healing it is for your insides.


This salad is also super tasty. The leeks, the pomegranate seeds, the pine nuts, and the avocado make a flavor and texture combination that just can’t be beat. And the dressing has a unique herbaceous zing from the tarragon.


So give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.


Spinach and Pomegranate Salad with Tarragon Lemon Dressing






4 cups baby spinach

1 pomegranate, seeded or 1/3 cup seeds

2 baby leeks, thinly sliced

1 Haas avocado, diced

1/2 cup white beans, drained and rinsed (I prefer Eden Organics)

1/4 cup pine nuts (or substitute with sliced almonds)




2 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh squeezed

1 tbsp. freshly grated lemon zest

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon

1/2 tsp. sea salt or more to taste (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)

Black black pepper to taste




Mix all salad ingredients in a bowl. Whisk all dressing ingredients together and dress your salad.
