Today, I'm going to share with you something that I have made before, but not recently, and was just thinking about today. It is the rainbow salad. When I last made it, I just chopped up a bunch of different colored fruits and veggies and threw them together. But I want to spice things up a little bit. I was browsing the internet for some salad inspiration, and came upon Martha Stewart's shredded rainbow salad. Perfect! That would be a great way to change things up! Maybe I'll make a great salad dressing too!
(This is Martha Stewart's salad, not mine, but it's so gorgeous that I couldn't resist posting it!)
Now I'm going to talk about how great the rainbow salad is for you! So, let's say I have a salad that is partly fruit and partly veggies. I have raspberries, tomatoes, carrots, yellow peppers, pears, spinach, avocado, blueberries, cauliflower, and blackberries. Delicious! The raspberries have antioxidants that fight cancer, vitamin K, and a ton of fiber. The tomatoes have cancer-fighting antioxidants too, they are great for your heart, and they act sort of like sunscreen too! The carrots are full of beta-carrotine, ward off cancer, and helps your eyes. The avocados are filled with healthy fats, the list goes on and on! Do I need to say anything more? Try this out at home! It's delicious and nutritious!
