Green Goddess Salad

Do you know those dishes you eat and instantly feel like you’re glowing from the inside out?

Yup, this is the one!

As soon as Ramadan started, my sugar intake sky-rocketed and my immune system crashed. I’ve been feeling bloated and tired. I knew I need to turn to this salad to ease all the excess sugar symptoms I’ve been feeling, especially with the added kick of probiotics from the sauerkraut.

This is an adaptation from two recipes; one by The Blender Girl and another taught at a workshop by Glow.

I hope you like it as much as I do!
