Tomato & Basil Salad with Lion's Mane

This salad is vegan, refined sugar- and gluten-free. Fresh, light and super tasty, did we mention it is super simple? You can try adding extra protein to this salad to really bulk it out. Trojan horse Lion’s Mane into the delicious dressing, we love adding our adaptogenic herbs to all our meals and drinks. Did you know our tonic herbs are not effected by temperature? So you can add them to hot and cold drinks and food. Feel free to try any of our medicinal mushrooms in this recipe, Mason's Mushrooms blend, Turkey Tail and Reishi are some great options.

 

We hope you love this recipe :)
