Spring Buckwheat Salad
Recipe by Krista A. Parr
Enjoy this colourful, anti-oxidant-rich salad as a side dish or light lunch served over a bed of baby greens. It’ll also be a hit at any potluck! Buckwheat is a gluten-free whole grain packed with B vitamins, zinc, fiber and D-chiro inositol, an important substance for women with PCOS. Choose high-quality cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds in order to benefit from their healthy fats. The radish, cucumber, green onion, lemon juice, and green apple stimulate the liver to gently cleanse the body, but you can use any veggies you have on hand.
