Salads are one of the easiest things to prepare. The key, however, is to have fresh ingredients. Remove that and you’ll be highly compromising the outcome. This here salad is one of my favourite. Pretty simple and tasty! It’s so easy to do you can quickly whip it up on a day when you’re feeling exhausted but still need to have a healthy side dish to your meal. Growing up, my mum always insisted that a meal is not complete without vegetables and I find it hard now to serve a main meal without vegetables. She was right!! A meal isn’t complete without your source of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and other important nutrients.
