This is one of my favorite go-to salads for 3 reasons

1. It's ridiculously DELICIOUS & healthy

2. You can make a huge batch of it and voila there is your lunch for the week

3. You can make it with really any leftover veggies that you have in your fridge

This recipe is my preferred version - this specific combo of veggies provide both interesting textural mix and health benies.
