Rainbow Vegetable Salad

I know what you’re all thinking.  Vegetable salad?  YUCK!

Don’t you worry, I had the same concern at the beginning.  I was looking for a way to get a lot of my daily vegetables in one meal.  I was looking for something easy, tasty, and painless to take on-the-go.

After posting this image once on Snapchat I had quite a few people ask me for the recipe, so I thought this would be the perfect recipe to share with all of you!  Follow this recipe and let me know what you think!  I’d love to hear your feedback.

Ingredients:

**Makes 1 serving**

  • Garbanzo beans (canned, 1/3 cup)
  • Red bell pepper (1/4 whole)
  • Cucumber (1/3 whole)
  • Spinach (2 cups)
  • Kalamata olives (5 whole, pitted)
  • Feta cheese (approximately 1/4 cup)
  • Carrots (shredded, approximately 1/3 cup)
  • Lemon juice (approximately 1 teaspoon)
  • Greek salad dressing (approximately 2 tablespoons)
  • Lemon pepper (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Hummus (My favorite is Hope’s Spicy Avocado Hummus from Costco)

Instructions:

  1. Pour garbanzo beans into a large bowl and sprinkle garbanzo beans with lemon pepper. Mix around with a spoon.
  2. In that same bowl, toss in shredded carrots.
  3. Chop up the bell pepper, cucumber, spinach, and olives (I like mine chopped pretty small in order to get a little bit of everything in each bite).  Add all to the bowl of garbanzo beans.
  4. Add feta cheese.
  5. Lastly, add the lemon juice and greek salad dressing.  
  6. Stir and enjoy cold!
