One of my NNDR's (that's my Non-Negotiable Daily Rituals for the newbies!) is to eat a rainbow of different coloured veggies every day! This is something I recommend to all of my clients - and pretty much anyone who will listen. From a health perspective, it's a no-brainer: when you do this you get fibre, antioxidants, minerals and a variety of phytonutrients (and science is really only starting to understand the myriad benefits of plant phytonutrients).
A Rainbow Salad is a simple and delicious way to make sure you are eating a Rainbow of different, super-healthy phytonutrients each day. And my Lemon Blueberry Dressing was borne out of a desire to make sure "the blues" were well represented in my salad.
This dressing on this salad, is sweet, tangy and crisp. A big fave in my house!
