Creative Summer Salad: A Symphony of Flavour & Wellness
It's finally warmed up for summer and time to dust off the salad recipes. There are really endless varieties of salads. You don't need to stick to lettuce, tomato and cucumber. Choose from your favourite vegetables, seeds, nuts, beans, herbs etc and a healthy dressing like lemon juice and olive oil. This works well on it's own or as a side salad.
If you suffer from IBS symptoms, are on a SIBO treatment plan or you're sensitive to FODMAPs look for swaps like tomatoes instead of chickpeas, avoid the garlic, olives instead of the avocado and pumpkin instead of the walnuts if you find nuts hard to digest. Be as creative as you like within your own unique dietary requirements.
