Santa bought us a new food processor and we are making the most of it! everything is getting shredded, sliced and grated! It makes salads more exciting and helps to boost veggie intakes throughout the day. It also helps with meal prep so work lunches are sorted long before that evening fatigue hits and motivation goes out the window.
You can use this salad as a base and add whatever other yummy ingredients you feel like! Carrots, rocket, dandelion greens, radicchio would all be delicious here. We served it with falafels as that is what we had in the fridge at the time, however, any other protein would also work.
