Sushi Inspired Salad

Whose in the mood for a fresh tasting sushi inspired salad?

This easy to make salad featured organic edamame beans, brown rice (yay complex carbs), sun-dried tomato, and a sesame ginger dressing with miso.  If you’re new to the miso train- jump on board!  It is a fermented soybean paste- you might recognize the flavour from miso soup.  Miso is a probiotic, which means it contains healthy bacteria to populate our gut- improving digestion, mood, and brain function.  Miso makes for delicious salad dressings and stir fry sauces.
