    I can't wait to try this salad. Would this be good to eat daily or because it's a detox salad should it be consumed every so often? Please advise and thank you so much for sharing your blog.

    • SkinnyMs  April 28, 2014

      You could eat the salad daily. Only do the whole detox for a few days if that's what you are planning though. Eating the salad as part of your regular everyday meals would be healthy.

    Is there any substitutes for the dates and almonds ?! I can't Wait to start this !!

    • SkinnyMs  September 3, 2014

      Sarah, You can substitute dates for raisins and almonds for walnuts.

  3. cecelia  February 2, 2015

    Am i suppose to eat the whole salad prepared. or only one serving.

    • SkinnyMs  February 4, 2015

      Cecelia, You are supposed to eat one serving. If you are having this as part of the 3-Day Detox and you are still hungry, you can have more.

  4. zombmom  March 12, 2015

    Is there a substitute for the blueberries?

    • SkinnyMs  March 12, 2015

      Zombmom, You can substitute any other types of berries or cut up fruit for the blueberries.

      • Holly Hunt  June 15, 2020

        For the 2 day detox, can we have more than one serving of this if we are still hungry?

        • Gale Compton  June 16, 2020

          Holly, By all means, eat until you’re satisfied, not stuffed however. 🙂

  5. Payal  September 17, 2015

    Is there substitute for carrots ?

    • SkinnyMs  September 17, 2015

      Yes, I would recommend parsnips, radishes, or any other crunchy vegetable.

  6. Holly g  March 9, 2016

    Ok, so detox drink in the am. Smoothie for breakfast, salad at lunch, soup and second smoothie?

    • SkinnyMs.  March 9, 2016

      Holly, this is a single detox recipe. Are referring to one of our Cleanse & Detox Meal Plans?

  7. Alease  April 6, 2016

    Does this salad keep well for the remaining days, since you can only eat a cup a day.

    • SkinnyMs.  April 7, 2016

      As long as you reserve the dressing and add before eating each day, then the salad will keep for a few days.

  8. Cathy  April 12, 2016

    When you say cups of spinach is it lightly packed or tight packed?

    • Gale Compton  April 12, 2016

      Cathy, Loosely packed! I just updated the recipe. 🙂

  9. samantha  June 17, 2016

    Can you recommend a sub for spinach? I’m highly sensitive to it and cannot eat it 🙁

  10. Mary  June 18, 2017

    I’m confused. The 7 day flush the fat away meal plan. There is a choice of five fat flushing drinks, 8 ounces of one of these to be drank before the three meals for the seven days along with the snacks and the super boost salad. Is this correct? Somewhere while trying to get this all down I thought something was said about a 10 day detox. All this is new to me so any help will be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and your help.

    • Gale Compton  June 18, 2017

      Mary, You’re correct about choosing one of the 8 ounce fat flushing drinks before meals, in addition to the snacks and salad.

  11. solitaire  May 14, 2018

    no salt or pepper?

  12. Mary  March 4, 2019

    This was such a delicious and filling salad. Thank you.
