Shredded Detox Salad

This salad has quickly become one of the favorites for my tBK Cleanse clients. It is simple to make, nut-free and loaded with a colorful - and vitamin packed - assortment of raw veggies.  Eat it by itself or add a piece of high-quality wild fish for a heartier meal.  Either way, it is delicious and satisfying with the perfect blend of sweet and savory, crunchy and creamy.  Yum.  Enjoy!
