Have you seen such a colorful salad served in this kind of transparent bowl lately? No you have not. Therefore, it is time for you to make it now and surprise your family. Perhaps, you are like my twin daughter Suzy and can go to your backyard garden to pick organic kale, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers or zucchini and make a colorful one. If not, just use what you have at home or go to the grocery store, but either way make it this week, it is so healthy!
