Tips & Nutrition

The radishes in this salad are a great “spring detox” ingredient. They contain antioxidants that help clear toxins that may have accumulated over the winter months. These antioxidants also work to reduce inflammation, prevent disease and boot immunity. In this salad their sharp flavour is is nicely contrasted with the sweetness of the fresh orange.
