The Rainbow Salad

The Rainbow Salad

Lately we have been hearing “Eat The Rainbow”. We will be speaking more on that in upcoming webinars and videos. And watch for our special treatment on Ancient Foods and what we can learn from the past, as modern science continues to identify new phenols and the wonders of a plant based diet. With Spring in full bloom, now is the time to make The Rainbow Salad with your favorite dressing, for all your friends and family. We suggest the Pine and Dill Ranch Dressing for the perfect complement. Be creative and use what you have and can obtain fresh, and you will see first hand how easy it is to eat the rainbow. You will feel great and you will notice everyone will be smiling.
