For the last of our no-bake recipes, we wanted to show you a quick & nutrient-packed salad. I always say I can put together a salad as fast as a sandwich, so I timed this one to see my stats. Even with chopping the veggies, this delicious blend of summer veggies only took me 5 minutes to prepare. This plant-based power house salad is packed polyphenols, which may help with training-induced inflammation. It is also a great source of vitamins A, C & K, as well as the mineral potassium. It is a perfect quick lunch or dinner to support your training and recovery.
