Lupini bean green salad with lemon-olive oil dressing


Tonight I didn't plan what I was going to have for dinner but I needed to make it a completely clean meal since I'm starting a cleanse.  The cleanse is a little bit of the 28 day Arbonne cleanse and a little bit of the Superhero diet in The Kind Diet cookbook.  Basically, you avoid alcohol, caffeine, gluten, flour, sugar and vinegar products for a specific amount of time (I'm going to take it week by week).So, I made a big salad and added a few things and I made a salad dressing that my friend Melissa made on Saturday-it was awesome!  No vinegar involved.

Salad: mixed greens of your choice.  Start with romaine lettuce and then add a variety of mixed greens (kale, spinach, arugula).  I then tossed in leftover brown rice pasta from last night, lupini beans, and organic slaw. 

Dressing: 1/8 of a cup of freshly squeezed lemon, 1/4 cup of olive oil, a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of fresh pepper, a clove of garlic (also add mint but I didn't have any).  Combine all the ingredients and shake well.  Taste it.  The lemon overpowered the entire mixture so I added more olive oil.  It is so tasty!  As a little side, I had some unsweetened shredded coconut and mixed nuts.
