Fresh vegetable chopped salad

The first time I ever left my first born for a night (he was still with my husband) I went big.

I flew to Sydney for two nights.

I must admit, leaving felt like I was leaving a little piece of me behind but we both survived. In fact I think the boys had a pretty good time without me.

I missed them both like crazy but I had a pretty good weekend myself but with a bit of overindulgence –  I was there for an engagement celebration.

After a weekend of a bit too much of things I usually don’t have much of at all, I was in serious need of balancing out the indulgences with a morning walk and a big salad for lunch.

If you’ve been visiting here for a while you’ll know I don’t really do salad in the traditional sense.

You won’t often see leaves on my plate.

Give me veges though and I’m a happy camper.

I tried a broccoli salad a few weeks ago and since then have been formulating a little recipe in my head.

This fresh vegetable chopped salad is a bit of a superfood plate for me loaded with veges.

I really wanted to top it with pomegranate seeds for a pop of pink but I couldn’t find any.

Some chopped strawberries would be nice too.

You can serve this as a side with grilled meats (or even garlic bugs), or add feta or haloumi for a light lunch. I made up a big bowl of it and it lasted in the fridge for a few days.

It would be a great one to make up on a Monday morning for a couple of day’s worth of lunches.

Feel free to switch up the vegetables for whatever you have on hand as long as you have roughly the same amount so there is enough dressing. Enjoy!
