Salads: Alkaline Italian Salad
Always consider the following when preparing an Alkaline Salad:
- Always use fresh vegetables,
- Use cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, and
- lemon or lime juice instead of vinegar.
- Choose your favorite fresh herbs and spices for seasoning.
Ingredients for 2 servings:
2 cups roman lettuce or escarole
1 cup of cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
4-6 black olives
1 small stalk of leek
Some fresh basil leaves

2 tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice
2 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp ground oregano

Wash salad and cut in medium-sized pieces. Dice the peppers, cut tomatoes in halves, and the bell pepper, olives and leek into fine stripes. Put all ingredients in a big salad bowl.
Prepare the salad dressing:
Put all ingredients for the alkaline dressing in a blender and mix until all ingredients are well emulsified. Season again if desired. (If you prefer a thicker dressing, you can also add 1 tbsp. of flaxseeds before blending.)
Finally, pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Enjoy your healthy alkaline salad!
