Summary

More and more people have turned to eating healthy food and include Salad in their meals, This is one of those salads that really look colorful and you can add what you like to this salad. This is one of my favorite salads.

This recipe has been adopted from something I saw online and made it to my liking. The recipe called for Broccoli or Cauliflower which I did not include.  Broccoli may work great if Saute the little florets. I also changed some ingredients, so basically changed the recipe.

The dressing is made fresh with Yogurt, Rice vinegar I like Balsamic white Vinegar, Sunflower seeds and Mustard.

This recipe makes about 4 to 6 Bowls of Salad-depending on the size of the bowl.

If there is any left over dressing, you can store it in the Refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
