The best thing of cooking is being creative, which sometimes can be a disaster, and other times can be successful. This salad was definitely one of my successful stories :)

It was so quick, easy and also super tasty and refreshing. I used whatever I had on hand, then chopped them up, lined them up over a bed of lettuce. Quickly whisked a vinaigrette, then drizzled it all over the salad. Enjoyed it with a few slices of good bread, it was incredibly delicious, filling and loaded with goodness.

Too busy to cook, give this salad a go, no doubt you will fall in love with the simplicity and yumminess.
