Grain Free. Paleo. Vegan & Vegetarian Versions.
Brighten up your holiday celebration with this beautiful, antioxidant packed side dish! Remember, color equals antioxidants and this salad is packed full of color, flavor, and nutritional goodness. A great recipe to infuse into your holiday spread, this salad is actually best made in advance because the longer you marinate the salad the better it tastes. We recommend an overnight marinating time for best results.
Need a great seasonal weeknight dinner? You can also make this into an entree salad by adding some Crispy Roasted Chickpeas (see recipe) or even some diced roasted sweet potatoes. Or for you meat eaters out there, a nice piece of broiled or roasted salmon or organic grilled chicken breast on top of this salad makes it into a very filling meal. Either way...you can't go wrong...check it out...
