Pressed Salad
by Macro Mom - Sarah Forrester Wendt

This morning I made a pressed salad to go with lunch . Pressing is a way of marinating vegetables under pressure in order to make them more digestible. Pressed salad is often used in small amounts, or as a condiment.

1 carrot, cut into thin rectangles
1/4 cabbage, shredded
4 red radishes, sliced into thin rounds
1 green onion, sliced thinly
1tsp sea salt

Mix all ingredients together and squeeze a little with your hands.
Put into a salad/pickle press or in a bowl with a plate on top.
Put a weight on top of the plate to help press out water.
After 45 min-hour rinse the vegetables and serve a small amount with your meal.
