Local Produce Potatoes Asparagus Green Beans Carrots

This sustainability salad recipe really depends on the local produce available in the area you live in—and the veggies that make you smile. We used micro greens that are grown on top of high rises in Vancouver, local asparagus, green beans and potatoes.  Use anything that is in season and local. Most importantly, get creative—you can’t go wrong with this one. Tossed with a Spicy Mustard Dressing that has Omega-3 ALA, this is a nutritious salad rich that could be a staple in any plant-based diet.
