I’m a huge fan of salads. The more colorful the better.
I’m about to up your summer salad game with this vibrant loaded beauty with all the veggies.
By using a lot of different colored veggies we are getting a wide range of nutrients and the rainbow colors trick our body into being fuller quicker.
People eat with their eyes first. So pretty equals yummy.
I love this super salad. It reminds me of a salad we used to have for dinner when I was growing up. So simple and so deeelish.
And the dressing made with fresh lemon juice and zest adds a bright zing that doesn’t get in the way of the gorgeous fresh salad.
Perfect for summer lunches, dinners, or the next time you have friends over. This salad has something everyone can love.
