Simple Fresh & Vibrant Autumn Salad!


Don’t let your salads get left behind as the weather starts to cool this Autumn. You can still enjoy beautiful fresh, vibrant and zesty  autumn salad over the next couple of months before we transition to soups!
The best thing about salads is they are so versatile, and they are by no means a side dish only.

This recipe is so quick and easy to make, and you can substitute for whichever kind of protein you prefer, or add in any extra veggies!

For the non-meat eaters, baked tempeh works beautifully in this dish!

It is a perfectly balanced, filling and delicious meal to make if you’re having guests over, going to a BBQ or just for yourself at home!
