Pressed Salad Recipe

I was introduced to the idea of pressed salads a couple weeks ago when I began to add more varieties of vegetables to my diet. After experimenting with several variations, I found a refreshing blend of vegetables and herbs that please my taste buds to no end. Even better, these veggies are “cooked” by pressure which will break down the hard to digest aspects of the vegetable, but keep the healthy enzymes. It’s no wonder that this salad makes my tummy feel wonderful after eating it. In my opinion, a salad recipe doesn’t get much better than this one!
