Healing Properties of Ginger

What sets this salad apart from other Kale Beet Salads is the ginger dressing. I absolutely love ginger because of its spicy warming flavour. It actually has a lot of healing properties, the top 3 are:

  • Relaxes the intestinal tract to reduce gas
  • Eases nausea and motion sickness
  • Contains gingerols which are a potent anti-inflammatory
