Detox salads? Who knew?


Tropical Detox Salad


This Tropical Detox Salad recipe is seriously my new favorite!  With swimsuit season being just around the corner, I wanted to create a recipe that would be healthy and light, but also utilize the season’s fresh fruit–especially delicious grape fruit, which helps burn fat and cleanses.  The fresh fruit, coconut, and almonds in the salad pair perfectly with my homemade Skinny Sweet and Sour Dressing!
