This salad is as healthy and delicious as it looks. Michael and I have been reading a book called Thrive by Brendan Brazier. Brazier is a professional Ironman Triathlete and a vegan...just wanted to make sure ya got that ;) I haven't finished the book yet, but we're trying to bring our "healthiness" to a whole new level. This salad is from that book. So if you want to be uber healthy for the day, include this as one of your meals!
