If you like to consume your veggies raw, this is a great salad for you.
The green beans were lightly steamed, but everything else is raw.
Next time, because I have young children, I’ll lightly steam the carrots, too.
Bursting with flavor, thanks to the lemon and sesame oil. I added the chia seeds for an extra dose of nutrition – chia seeds are high in Omega-3′s.
