I'm sad that it took me this long to find this detox plan because it has now supplied me with my favorite winter salad.
Except that it's no longer winter.
Now that we're on the cusp of spring and all my winter veggies are going out of season, I'll be craving this salad until November! Thanks, Universe!
If you're never thought to eat raw sweet potatoes, you should definitely give it a try. It's much more mild then its cooked counterpart. Bonus: This salad was pretty good on the ol' blood sugar!
