Crunchy Super Green Salad

A fresh and light salad with lots of satisfying crunchy textures. Sprouts are tiny plants at the beginning of their growth, so they have super concentrated nutrients; add to that mineral-rich greens, carrots, radishes and scallions, and you have a superfood salad.

Classic everyday food as medicine that helps protect against chronic disease by promoting a healthy gut microbiome, digestive and immune system support and helps to balance blood sugar. Shop your local farms and farmers’ markets for thoughtfully grown in-season vegetables.
