Today’s recipe is a really simple, delicious salad that’s perfect for those Summer nights. It actually came about spontaneously when I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner that didn’t take up too much time (#momlife) and was still healthy , whilst at the same time using up some veg in the fridge that needed to be eaten. That is what makes this recipe so brilliantly versatile! If you ever have leftover veg that needs to be consumed like 1 carrot, a couple of sweet potatoes, a courgette…etc then this is perfect! You can use any veg you like really. I’ve made this with quite a few different vegetable combinations. Lentils are used in this as well, which again are super quick to cook, or you could even just use a tin of lentils to make life that little bit easier.
This salad could be eaten as a main or as a side dish. It would pair up really well for those plant-based weekend braai’s (BBQ’s) or even to take with for a Summer Pot Luck. The more variety of veg you use, the better aesthetically as well as nutritionally. You know the saying “eat the rainbow” right? It’s a simple way of reminding you that a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet will get you the vitamins and minerals you need. So I hope you enjoy this delicious salad.
