This salad is so tasty! It wakes up my tastebuds and touches all of my senses.. YES it's just that good. Loaded with great ingredients and it makes marvellous leftovers too. Just store it in an airtight container in the fridge it will keep for a few days. It's nice as a lunch but also as a main at dinner. I make a huge batch and have enough for a few lunches during the week.
I love this salad for it's versatility. You can switch up the veggies creating a new salad every time. Which brings me to my next point.. always be creative in the kitchen use recipes as a guideline.. feel free to switch ingredients up with your favourites. Now that your tastebuds are watering.. here is the recipe.
