Project Description

Colorful food brings me alive and makes my heart feels so happy when the food on the plate is a diverse mix of color and texture! This salad is great paired with any meat off the grill or as a side to about anything. It’s packed full of vitamins and is great source of energy for your body.

Even though I call this summer salad it really can be served year around.  It’s bright color brings a kiss of summer to any meal! You could make this into a meal by adding grilled chicken or salmon to it.
