Chopped Salads

I am really getting into these chopped salads for lunch as the weather heats up. It takes a little more time but they are packed with nutrition. Great way to get a variety of veggies in there! For the protein, I add beans. Can be eaten with crackers or a good slice of bread. You won't be hungry for the rest of the day.

Chopped Salad 
This one has cucumber, parsley, carrot, dandelion greens, celery, radish, green onion, and grape tomatoes. For the beans I used natto, which is fermented soybeans. I found an organic brand from Sebastopol. seasoned with furikake and asian dressing. Furikake is a seasoning of toasted nori and sesame seeds. Get the kind with no msg added. There are many other vegetables I can't wait to try in this, such as cabbage, lotus root, bamboo shoots, daikon, water chestnut.

Asian dressing: combine roasted sesame oil, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar and organic soy sauce.

Beans: edamame, natto or sugar snap peas
