Simple Crispy Salad

Crispy Lettuce ∙ Purple Radish ∙ Carrot

A simple 3 ingredient salad with crispy lettuce greens + purple radish + carrot.  This is a great salad for baby greens or Romaine or the crispy classic Iceberg Lettuce.  Seasonally this works well in the cooler months for using those root vegetables. 


I like to serve this with my lemony dijon mustard salad dressing as it adds a little warmth to aid digestion.  Taste great sprinkled with Immune Supportive Seed Snack
