We love this healthy and satisfying recipe! It’s delicious on any kind of salad greens, spinach, rice, or grains. (We prefer it on quinoa.) The Kootenay Bowl recipe is a staple at our lodge in British Columbia. Enjoy the fresh crunch of veggies and nuts topped with a yummy and creamy dressing. Enjoy!
