It’s spring time everybody! How freaking exciting is that?! I love season changes. Except for winter. I could definitely live without winter. But spring means no more snow, it means a lot more fresh local produce, means summer is coming and salads are on the menu again! Not that you can’t eat them in the winter but I think you know what I mean. A cold meal is not exactly what people crave when it’s minus ten outside…But on a warm spring day, yes please!
Spring is also a good time to detox and salads are just the perfect way to do that! Veggies are always good for you no matter what, but as the temperature outside gets warmer, your body needs colder food, just to keep everything balanced you know?
This Vietnamese Chopped Salad is a great spring/summer staple, and will make you feel refreshed and energized!
Beautiful radishes and carrots from the market in Panajachel (Guatemala), cost me about 2 dollars for a bunch of carrots, one of radishes, a cabbage and fresh mint!
