It’s the ideal salad for this season when all these vibrant veggies- peppers, cucumber, radish are within your reach. Love the crunch the broccoli and peppers it gives! Plus the extra kick of spice from the radish adds excitement into the flavor, and the presence of the fresh strawberries creates a little sweetness. Then, an oil-free, and sugar free special dressing to bring it all together… so, what more could you ask for?

Limit not your creativity in this veggie salad- you can also change up some ingredients depending on what’s available and add some fruits for more sweetness. Experiment on the dressing and toppings too, and I tell you the possibilities are endless!

And now, it is time to eat the rainbow!
