Rainbow Salad

I love to make salad. It’s simple and fast, not to mention efficiency which I like. Another favorite reason is a way for me to clean out the fridge. Especially vegetables that I sometimes buy one too many, which we all do, right?

This time I found some neat ones that inspired me to throw together a Rainbow Salad dressed with zesty balsamic vinaigrette.

The fresh ingredients you will need are probably already in your fridge: red pepper, yellow pepper, tomato, candy-striped beet, cucumber, and spring mix (from Costco or mix together organic baby arugula, organic baby lettuces, organic baby spinach, red and green chard).

Add sunflower seeds, salmon roe, roasted black and/or white sesame seeds, and shaved Parmesan cheese to jazz up the aroma, texture and flavors of the salad.

Then drizzle the salad with zesty balsamic vinaigrette, which mixed together with 1/2 tsp orange zest, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 tbsp finely chopped mint, 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette, 2 tbsp sesame oil.

And there you have it in less than 30 minutes! A beautiful gourmet rainbow salad loaded with countless of nutrients.

Stay healthy! Stay happy!

Have a beautiful day!

      With the Rainbow Salad, eating healthy is not so dull anymore (a way to get my hubby eats salad with me).

    Ooh I love your photos!! Beautiful and delicious. I’ve never seen candy-striped beets but they’re now on my shopping list for sure!

      Thanks! I found them at a farmer’s market at random. They taste crunchy and sweet, especially the stripes and beautiful color I love. Good luck with the search! Enjoy your weekend!
