One of the best things about this salad is that every bite is filled with different textures and flavors. Remember, it is always beneficial to eat your colors, i.e. eat salads with a lot of different colored fruits and vegetables in them.

Instructions

  1. Once you figure out which colorful produce items you will be using, wash and prep them. It is best to cut everything into bite-size pieces. Add all of the ingredients to a large salad bowl, or you can divide them into little bowls or containers for prepped lunches.
  2. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a creamy consistency.
  3. You can keep the dressing in a glass jar in the fridge for about a week.
