You’ve likely heard the adage from doctors and nutritionists to “eat the rainbow” or “eat as many colors as possible,” and while this message may seem antiquated (because we’ve heard it so many times), it’s actually a sound visual strategy for getting a variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants onto your plate (or bowl). We took this advice to heart and created a stunning rainbow salad that features a variety of hues, textures, and tastes. The blend of baby lettuces provide a delicate bed for bitter purple cabbage, bursting roma tomatoes, vibrant and sweet carrots, garden-fresh and snappy bell peppers, crisp and cool cucumbers, spicy and sharp radishes, and creamy avocado. Doused in a balanced blend of acidic and oily vinaigrette and speckled with a garlic, onion, sesame and poppy seed seasoning blend, this vegan keto salad offers plenty of variety and visual pop.
