Not only does a rainbow salad look great but it provides our body with the best sources of nutrients to maintain long term health. The vibrant colours of fruits and vegetables come from phytonutrients, which are healing plant chemicals and each colour carries its own unique disease fighting nutrients. This is why when we put together a salad we should endeavour to include fruits and veggies from all the different coloured groups. This is how my rainbow salad came about.
3 medium sized zucchinis, grated
1 red capsicum, sliced
¼ purple cabbage, sliced thinly
150g orange cherry tomatoes, halved
2 spring onions, sliced diagonally
handful parsley chopped
80 ml lime juice
80 ml coconut aminos or tamari
½ teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Prepare dressing and set aside.
Grate zucchini and place in colander to remove excess liquid.
Combine all ingredients in salad bowl and dress prior to serving.
