Garden Salsa Salad Bowls with Dulse

Garden salsa salad is a nourishing whole food plant-based recipe; lots of summery salad ingredients are finely diced, mixed with capers and dulse, and served over a bed of salad greens.  Healthy fats + proteins come from the added seeds and deeply nourishing minerals from the parsley, dulse and greens.  You can swap the ingredients according to what’s in your garden, local farms and markets.
