Recipe: Raw Zucchini Salad
I am absolutely obsessed with this salad (and so is my 3yo nice Valentina from what I hear).
The high fiber combination of the raw zucchini ribbons, paired with the crunchiness of the radishes and raw asparagus (an amazing pre-biotic) make for a happy, healthy gut. Nutritious, refreshing and quick to pull together, you'll be eating it for days, I promise.
