∙ eat the rainbow ∙ a salad you can cook

A straightforward, affordable slaw style dish ~ “eat the rainbow” salad!  This is great for weekly meal prep to have in the fridge because you can serve it as both a salad and lightly stir-fried!!  If your reflecting on what your eating and salads are on your list, consider serving them with a warming dressing or vinaigrette to aid your digestion. 

 

Raw foods are energetically cold so harder to digest and take more energy and help your body by adding balance with warming spices and digestive herbs.  Spices like ginger, cumin, paprika, chilli, turmeric, black pepper, mustard, allspice, clove, anise are all warming.  Herbs like mint, parsley, dill, basil, fennel, cilantro, sage, rosemary, and thyme can help your digestion and nutrient absorption.

 

As a salad serve this with a Lemony Dijon Mustard Salad Dressing or Dill Tahini Sauce or a Simple Lemon Vinaigrette spiked with spices like cumin, smoked paprika and allspice.  As a stirfry use spices like cumin seeds, black mustard seeds or chilli flakes, if you like a sauce add my Asian Style Dressing.
