Rainbow Salad


What color is your food? Mine’s multi color, just like a rainbow today:)

Heard on NPR yesterday about a study that showed that women who ate colored fruits and vegetables had a lower risk of heart disease as pigmented fruits and vegetables are rich in phytochemicals and anti oxidants. That was inspiration enough to chop up those tri colored peppers that were sitting in my refrigerator, toss it in with some spring mix, red onions, baby carrots and cherry tomatoes. Also threw in some almonds to add a nutty taste and dried cranberries to give a hint of sweet/tanginess. You can dress it up with some rice vinegar, EVOO and fresh ground pepper and drizzle some shredded mozzarella over it!.
