Check out our Chakra Balancing Salad full of fresh vegetables!
A potluck crowd pleaser! Sweet, nutty, crispy and crunchy. A dense 5 vegetable salad with apple cider vinegar—peanut dressing. Eating this salad can contribute to groundedness and safety (red, root chakra); healthy sexuality (orange, sacral chakra); unconditional love (green, heart chakra); calm & focus (purple, third eye chakra).
It is important to use dressings with healthy oils, which will increase your body's ability to utilize the nutrition in the raw vegetables and fat-soluable vitamins, A,D,E,K. The oils in this salad are all balanced, coming from a wonderful combination of nuts, seeds and avocados.
