This is one of those salads you can make with a mix of whatever fruits and vegetables are available with you at home. It uses a basic lemon, honey and olive oil dressing, keeping it light and fresh. It is best to have this salad fresh. In fact, I like to mix the fruits and vegetables together and keep it refrigerated. And keep the salad dressing separately. And mix it at the time of serving.
Salads are a great filler meal or when you are not in a mood to load up on carbs. This salad contains enough fibre and is quite filling too. If you are looking for more inspirations for salads, do check this out.
