I start to like eating salad when I get to know that it can help to regulate our immune system if we eat it right. Enoki or golden needles mushroom is one of the mushroom which contains high quantity of protein which helps in the regulation of our immune system. By short, the mushroom contain antioxidants.
To create a flavourful and delicious salad you need the right ingredients then salad is no more equal to boring or plain flavour. This is the salad you should try as it is flavourful and delicious, can eat it as its own. I'm stuck again when comes to name my dish as it contains so many main ingredients, so this round just make a short one: Golden Mushroom Glass Noodles Salad :)
