Spring Salad

This recipe was inspired by wanting to add some colour to my meals. 🌈

I’m usually pretty lazy during the week and eat mostly plain coloured food in excess (egg whites 🍳, Β oats 🍲, Β tuna 🐟, Β hake, brown rice, mushrooms πŸ„, broccoli 🌱).

So i raided my kitchen and landed up with this pretty amazing salad! Can be eaten alone or as am accompaniment to your protein πŸ‘Œ
