Nutritional & Energetic Notes
Pressed Salads are a fantastic way to prepare vegetables. The method used means that the vegetables are not completely raw but they maintain the freshness and bite. They are ideal for spring or autumn.
You can use carrots, radish and other type of sprouts from lentils or chickpeas...
It is very easy to make your own creation and prepare a beautiful and delicious salad.
If you don't have umeboshi vinegar you could use apple vinegar instead or sea salt.
