Rainbow salad

Sharing is caring!

Rainbow salad is absolutely packed with beautiful colours and flavours. Fresh, crunchy and super quick to make. Perfect for serving alongside summer meals.

To get a good mix of colour you need baby plum tomatoes, red or orange peppers, sweetcorn, carrots, cucumber, red cabbage and choose a salad leaf that has green and purple colours.

Rainbow salad is great served at a BBQ as it’s a nice chunky robust mix that goes well with BBQ sausages, kebabs and burgers. It’s also tasty packed into fajitas with grilled chicken and fresh guacamole.
