Meatless Monday: Crunchy Vietnamese Salad

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I have a thing for coriander (cilantro) and shallots (scallions) in everything at the moment (obsessed maybe?). This is a phase I go in and out of, but since right now I’m in, I decided to add it to this salad. It’s nutrient packed and delicious! Coriander is very beneficial as a detoxification herb due to its proven ability to eliminate heavy metals and other toxic metabolites from the body which we all need a bit of a helping hand with. ENJOY!
