Keith’s Warm Ayurvedic Salad

We all know that it’s great to eat raw food because it’s so full of vitality, vitamins and enzymes. But unless it’s really warm weather, raw food can seem cold and unappetising.

With Keith’s Ayurvedic warm salads you can get the best of both worlds!


In this salad warmth is added though the heated dressing. It also has ‘heat’ added through taste, the mustard seeds and ginger providing a pungent or hot taste. This really makes the dish more appetising.
