This salad is my most loved. It's my go-to when I'm headed to a BBQ or a get together... because no matter what is served, this salad is a meal in itself! Packed with fiber, antioxidants, and TONS of nutrients... it's worth EVERY amount of effort.
I highly recommend making 2 batches of this. The dressing is SOOOO freaking yummy and is good on any vegetable known to man. It can even be used as a marinade.
The base of the salad combines super antioxidant rich vegetables that nourish your body. Red cabbage boosts the immune system as it is one of the top vitamin C foods on the planet!! It helps fight inflammation, arthritis, AND promotes a healthy gut!
Cilantro is AMAZING at removing heavy metals from our body such as aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium! (Source) Also this salad is full of plant protein! The amount of quinoa in this salad boasts 12 grams of protein! Combing with raw garlic and ginger? Come on! What more do you need in a salad? NOTHING!
Serving food that nourishes the body and tastes amazing is what feeds (pun not intended) my soul!
Dive into this delicious salad and feel the love! When we feed our bodies clean and give it the information it needs to thrive, we feel the power effects and how food truly is medicine!

Hippie Tip: Make A LOT and save for another day! I usually double this recipe so I can create an easy lunch or side salad for dinner! Wait to add dressing, almonds and sesame seeds right before you serve! Store extra dressing in a airtight glass container… usually stays up to about 3-4 days in fridge.
