Updated: Feb 4, 2023

This delicious salad has all the colors of the rainbow, lots of crunch, and a little sweetness! It's the perfect winter meal if you're not a big fan of traditional leafy green salads. It's filling and fiber-rich, and holds up fairly well for meal prep! Option to add another protein source, like chicken or shrimp.
