Great gluten free salad option for the winter. Buckwheat has a warming effect on the body and very suited to those with candida and yeast infections. Can also add a pinch of cayenne pepper to further inhance the warming nature of the salad. Parsley can be replaced with rocket for those with hemochromatosis. Parsley is rich calcium & iron.
