One of my favorite go-to sides, great with any protein or on its own for a light lunch. You can add any combination of chopped vegetables.

Love the presentation, the dish looks so elegant, and the recipe sounds so light and refreshing, it's also so easy. I will have to give it a go, on my "to-make" list!
