This salad was a perfect example of mindful cooking. no rush needed. I set aside the 15 minutes of just washing, chopping and serving food that nourishes me. Then eating it with the same mindfulness before moving to the next task, in my case writing.
When preparing a meal try appreciating the colors, flavors and nutrients available in each ingredient and spice you choose.
The summer sun had me craving light and crisp veggies combined with a sweet and tangy sesame dressing. Add crushed cashews, avocado, tofu, or other varieties of veggies if you’d like!
I chose to mix the romaine with spiralized cucumber to give it some texture, and because I just love my spiralizer, but sliced cucumber would be fantastic as well.
