A Super Green Salad that celebrates whole foods


Super Green Salad

Super Green Salad

I truly believe all whole foods — fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes and whole grains — are super, but I’d be lying if I didn’t also admit that greens definitely top my personal list of go-to superfoods. Green vegetables are incredibly dense in micronutrients and low in starch, and easily comprise the majority of my plate at every meal.

Serves: 4–6
