rainbow salad 2a

Another Christmas been and gone! I was so busy in the lead up to Christmas this year that it all seemed to be over with so quickly. After weeks of rain, wind, and cold temperatures, the weather Gods finally turned on the goods for a warm and sunny Christmas day. I spent the day with B and his family at his parents house, and then up north to visit my Dad and his family on Boxing Day. Dad lives in a small rural town in Northern Tasmania and it was another beautiful day with the most amazing sunset casting beautiful colours over the surrounding paddocks.scottsdale 1Scottsdale 4bscottsdale 2ascottsdale 3aSpeaking of beautiful colours, this brings me to the salad I made for Christmas lunch and have made a few times since. I love bright, vibrant food that looks as good as it tastes. Not only is this salad tasty and pretty, its also packed with heaps of vegetables, which are definitely needed at the moment in the break between Christmas and New Year celebrations!
