Cucumber, Radish and Apple Salad (GF, V)

Print

This cucumber, radish and apple salad celebrates spring vegetables – for me it is a reminder to find beauty and meaning within those transitions and a reminder to enjoy the process. The radishes contain isothiocyanates that supply the body’s largest antioxidant glutathione, the apples contain quercitin that is an anti-inflammatory polyphenol and the monounsaturated fats in avocado stabilize cell membranes – a vibrant meal for a vibrant body and mind.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This delicious radish and apple salad is loaded with potassium thanks to our friend, avocado! Potassium helps keep our bodies hydrated and is great for fluid balance. Avocado, along with the apple, contributes 12g of fiber to this salad, making it great for regularity and keeping us full!
