What could be more perfect than dipping a crispy bacon, mango, avocado and green onion nori roll in Primal Kitchen® Ranch Dressing? Really nothing, in our opinion. The Castaway Kitchen (Cristina Curp) provides a sweet and savory twist to her nori roll filling with protein, vegetables and fruit--perfect for a nutrient-dense healthful dinner, roll on the go, or appetizer for your holiday party. Find the full recipe at The Castaway Kitchen blog.
Of course, there's another big reason why this roll’s nutritional profile catches our eye. Algae or sea vegetables, like nori, are filled with over 56 minerals, vitamins, and protein. Read more about the many health benefits of algae on Mark’s Daily Apple!
