Using fresh, seasonal fruits (mango and avocado), this salad trojan horses Mason’s Mushrooms into the sweet mustard dressing. What's 'trojan horse'? It's when you add tonic herbs (like medicinal mushrooms) into your everyday meals and drinks. Tonic herbs are not temperature sensitive - e.g. they are not effected by heat or cold, so they are super versatile and can be added into anything from your hot coffee, to raw dessert. Here is your invitation to get creative in the kitchen, adding tonic herbs. If you don't have any Mason's Mushrooms at the time of trying this recipe, experiment with any of the other mushrooms. 

 

This salad is light and nourishing, is gluten free and can be vegan or feel free to use chicken. Serves 6 people.
