Coconut Turmeric Salad

Ok! So. I love salads. I am one of those weird people who loves vegetables and I actually order salads when going to restaurants, cause I enjoy how many ingredients are usually in there, and frankly I am too lazy to make them at home a lot of the time. As soon as I saw my inspiration recipe for this, I knew that I had to try it. It’s actually pretty simple, but packed with flavour. The dressing is delicious and really versatile. You can easily do this with any kind of protein. I felt like this needed a protein punch, but the base salad is sooooo good as is. Lots of people asked if all that I ate was salads while doing the Whole30 and I had to laugh, cause I ate a ton of food, this happened to be one of the only salads I ate and was well worth it Whole30 or not. I can’t wait for you to try this!
