Rainbow Salad

A rainbow salad, healthful color in any season (photo courtesy Bos Kitchen).


This summery-looking salad can be made with winter ingredients. It can be raw, or a cooked salad, with sauteed bell peppers and Brussels sprouts.

It can have a center of grains or rice noodles (shown), or be all vegetables.

Our inspiration is this photo from Bos Kitchen, “plant based recipes made with love.”

Here’s what’s in the salad:

  • Avocado, diced
  • Baby Brussels sprouts
  • Lime wedges or vinaigrette
  • Radishes, sliced
  • Red bell pepper, sliced
  • Rice noodles, cooked (substitute bean sprouts or whole grains)
  • Yellow beets, shaved into ribbons and rolled into florets
  • Garnish: black sesame seeds, chia, chile flakes, flax seeds, garlic chips, fresh herbs or other favorite
    Of course, you can use whatever looks good to you in the produce section.

    And keep a look out for substitutions in the spring, summer and fall. Fiddlehead ferns, anyone? Ramps? Sugar snap peas?

    Have fun with it!
