“Simple is The Best” Salad

This is really a simple easy salad with full of antioxidant-rich vegetables! Also this salad uses root vegetables which is tend to be yang to neutral in nature, so it does not cool your body down like salad with tomato and cucumber, and it is a good winter fresh salad!

  2. Grade beets, carrots and ginger on top of kale
  3. Mince or crash garlic, and mix with vinegar, oil, finely chopped anchovy (or salt) and use as a dressing.
