This warm weather has got me craving fresh, healthy, light salads! Feels like summer already…
The salad is tangy, the dressing is zesty and it just tastes so fresh! Packed with nutrients from beautiful daikon radish, carrots, zucchini, spinach, tulsi or basil, avocado and almonds. Not to mention the electric green goodness that is the dressing 🙂
The salad and the dressing are so easy to make- if you have a mandolin keep it handy other wise a peeler will do and take to the radish and the carrots, creating thin ribbons and toss over the spinach. Slice up your zucchini and add these with some basil leaves, top with lots of avocado and almonds- I used tamari almonds 🙂
We had this as a main meal on a scorching day, but makes an epic side salad with tempeh and tofu.
