Salads, salads, salads

I am participating in the "Extreme Green Cleanse" for the month of July lead by author & CN, Natalia Rose.
It involves a green centric diet for the month so I have had a lot of fun so far making different salad version every night.

Here is the idea behind my creations:
1. Your favorite greens (with optional shredded cabbage)
2. Your favorite herbs
3. Your favorite sprouts
4. Your favorite veggies
5. Optional raw olives or avocado (not if using nut/seed based dressing)
6. Dressing: Lemon juice, a tahini dressing, raw almond butter dressing, guacamole, avocado or zucchini based pesto

Below are 2 of my creations.

 The above is butter lettuce, fennel, parsley,alfalfa sprouts, scallions, raw olives, & lemon juice + pink Himalayan  salt.

This was before the greens were added.  Cherry tomato, scallions, parsley, mint, cilanto + greens and lemon/salt dressing.
