Bastyr dietetic intern Siona Sammartino shares this recipe from her recent healthy vegetables video series.
This salad is bursting with a rainbow of flavors. Veggies should never be boring and this one is for sure a winner! Serve with a piece of seared halibut, salmon, chicken, grass-fed steak or lentils and enjoy.
Combine carrots, chard, peppers, onions, cilantro and basil in a large preparation bowl and set aside. Whisk together vinegar, oil, tamari, hot oil and syrup in a glass measuring cup. Taste and add sea salt as needed to pop and marry flavors. Add dressing to salad and toss to coat. Garnish with almonds and enjoy.
