Quinoa, Seaweed & Crunchy Veggie Salad

Quinoa, Seaweed & Crunchy Veggie Salad

One of the things I love most about eating plant based is the opportunity to try new foods that I never even knew existed, one of which is DULSE!

Dulse is a type of red seaweed & it’s rich in protein, vitamins, minerals & antioxidants! It’s also a good source of iron, calcium, potassium, iodine & fibre. It supports detoxification, prevents the body’s from absorbing heavy metals (due to its alginic acid content) & environmental toxins, boosts the body’s fat-burning ability & has 2x the nutritional value of kale!!

This salad is great as a side dish & easy to pack as an on the go lunch or dinner for busy days at school or work! It’s crispy & crunchy, simple & easy to make & the dressing is light, fresh & full of vitamin C & anti-inflammatory ingredients!
