Nothing says spring like biting into a fresh and crunchy salad! However, it’s so easy to get into a salad rut and opt for the same ole boring lettuce and toppings. Today I am sharing with you how to make a beautiful and nourishing Lemon Radish Spring Salad! This salad is full of different flavors and textures and packed with plant-based protein making it a perfect lunch or side!
One thing I love about this salad is how quick & easy the dressing is to make. While store bought salad dressings are convenient, they are usually filled with processed ingredients and even added sugar. The dressing for this salad is made with just a simple ingredients you probably have around the house. Prep the dressing before hand for a quick grab-n-go recipe throughout the week!
Salad Health Benefits:
Arugula is packed with vitamin K. This nutrient is essential for bone health because it is needed for calcium absorption. It also contains about 90% water making it a fresh and hydrating green!
Radishes contain lots of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C! These antioxidants work to prevent cell damage of aging skin and plays a key role in collagen production. They are also high in folic acid, which is essential for fetal development during pregnancy.
One cup of cannellini beans contains approximately 15 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber! This plant powerhouse is great to add into soups, salads or stir fries to make a complete meal! These beans are also high in copper, which primarily is needed in energy production as well as iron metabolism!
