We’re back with another spring salad! We can’t get enough of all of the fresh greens this time of year as we slowly awaken our digestive fire after lots of cooked and warming foods throughout the winter. This salad is inspired by Daphne Oz and features some of our favorite underrated vegetables like endive and radicchio. One of the best ways to diversify your microbiome is by eating a wide VARIETY of vegetables! Endive and radicchio are on the more bitter side which is really great for digestive and liver health. The homemade dressing for this salad compliments that slight bitterness really well, trust us on this one! 

You can have this as a side salad or round it out as a meal with the protein of your choice. Sautéed shrimp pairs really well with it! Here’s how to prep this salad:
