Thai Quinoa Salad

The Dr. Daryl-style Thai salad. It tastes like the zesty one you know and crave—minus the inflammation that harms your body. But the best part is my secret ingredient that sends your body straight to happy vacation mode: apple cider vinegar.

It acts like a healing tonic for anyone dealing with acid reflux and provides alkaline-forming properties. And packs in the flavor. One bowl sends your body to a 5-star beach resort good feeling kind of mode.
