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 🍳,  oats 🍲,  tuna 🐟,  hake, brown rice, mushrooms 🍄, 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 👌
