On my daily video call with my mom in Mexico, we were showing at each other our dishes and as usual, she came up with a saying: “The kitchen is life because that’s where our food comes from.”
We should eat to live rather than living to eat and although eating healthy and clean demands time, some kind of sacrifices, and a strong commitment to remain healthy, vibrant, fit and joyful, it is also true that eating wholesome foods comes with amazing rewards: not only makes us feel healthy and vibrant but also makes us feel great about ourselves and the conscious choices we make, knowing that there are so many other options to choose from out there.
I love to take time to craft my salads and experiment with all kinds of dressings so that my gut can enjoy the last result.
Although this Radish Greens/ Mandarin salad seems to have more radishes and mandarin than greens, it actually had the right balance of sweetness and bitterness.
What you need:
– The greens of two radish bushes
– Segments of 3 mandarins thin tough skin removed
– 5 medium radish roots spiralized
– Toasted coconut flakes to taste
– Segments of 2 mandarins
– Olive oil
– Garlic/Onion to taste
– Himalayan Salt
– The juice of one lemon
How to prepare
Place all the salad ingredients in a bowl. Blend in a blender all the dressing ingredients until smooth and pour it at the top of the salad.
