Dandelion & Nori seaweed Salad


One of my favorite greens is "Dandelion green." Dandelion green is powerhouse vegetable and has health benefits

- help good liver, gallbladder, bile duct function

- reduce water retention (= works as a diuretic)

- help improve bone and eye health.

Nutrients : vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, Calcium, Potassium, etc.

I chose red dandelion greens this time for more polyphenols⇩

Nori seaweed is usually used for sushi but I love to use nori for salad.

Nutrients: Vitamin B12 (good for vegan!), vitamin C, calcium, iron, fiber, and plant protein. Nori seaweed looks like this ⇩ you can click to buy here or Japanese grocery stores.
