Slender Side - Simple (gluten free, macrobiotic, vegan, vegetarian, recipe)

It doesn't get much faster than to simply shred, mix and serve.  This refreshing side salad is a breeze to make and with fat dissolving daikon, intestinal cooling mint, and alkalizing lime - you'll probably be feeling your tummy flatten and showing your slender side from the first bite.  (A little exaggeration but your mind is powerful ya know...)

Simple Slender Side - Daikon and Mint slaw

Feel free to make your own variations and amounts.

Shredded daikon radish (the larger ones are usually sweeter)
Shredded green apple
chopped mint
sea salt
olive oil
lime juice

Depending on how much you have shredded, sprinkle in a pinch of sea salt or two and mix well.  (use your hands) drizzle in a little olive oil and lime to your taste.  (I like to be generous)

Try other veggies like butternut squash or crookneck squash.  Try other herbs or spices that you enjoy or cut up some toasted nori and add it in or wrap your salad in nori.  See what fun creations you can come up with.
