A Gorgeous Asian Cabbage & Green Bean Salad

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

In my organic box I had loads of green beans to eat so it gave me the perfect excuse to blanch them and make a crunchy seasoned salad to enjoy. The colors in this salad made it fun to photograph, but once I took a bite the beauty in the flavor is just as wonderful. You can enjoy this salad as as a main meal with the addition of a healthy protein such as legumes, nuts, tempeh, wild fish, organic chicken, eggs, or grass fed red meat if you choose to or as always, simply enjoy it as it is!
