Spring is the time to get back into eating fresh, raw foods! After a long, cold winter when we want to eat hot, comforting meals it is great to refresh the body and cleanse your tissues with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. This is the time when I really crave fresh foods and it is a sign that the body is ready to release some of the buildup of winter. This salad is crunchy and delicious with a fresh herb dressing that is rich in minerals and vitamin C that help to cleanse the body, reduce inflammation and give your skin a healthy glow!
