GREENS WITH SPIRULINA DRESSING
This salad is in part inspired by one of my favourite cafes in Victoria, Bliss, who used to serve up a similar ‘surfer’ inspired salad dressing of spirulina alongside tenderized kale, kelp, arugula, marinated shiitake mushrooms, and pickled ginger. The spirulina flavour isn’t for everyone, so start with a little powder and taste as you go.
