Niçoise Salad

Niçoise Salad

Fresh and bright, this attractive salad offers a bit of everything: tender greens, crunchy radishes, juicy tomatoes, creamy potatoes, succulent green beans, savory olives, and fragrant fresh herbs—all covered in a slightly sweet, slightly tangy dressing.

Potatoes have extremely easily assimilable protein. They’re also rich in minerals such as potassium as well as the amino acid L-lysine to help reduce inflammation caused by pathogens.

Green beans are very gentle on the stomach, making them an especially good choice for anyone with a sensitive gut.

This recipe comes from Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes, the companion book to Medical Medium Brain Saver. These two essential books about our most complex organ—the brain—dive deep into why people all over the world are suffering with mental health and brain-related symptoms and conditions. Brain Saver unveils the why behind more than 100 brain- and nervous system–related symptoms, diseases, and disorders; Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes reveals the truth about how to heal in even more detail (including cleanses, recipes, supplement protocols, and so much more).

  • For a fat-free recipe, omit the olives. If you do choose to include the olives, look for sun-dried botija olives or another variety that doesn’t contain any oil, citric acid, or table salt.
