A Colourful Winter Salad

Happy Sunday Folks! I made this scrumptious colourful winter salad for lunch and thought I'd share it on here for when I'm lacking foodspiration. It's an easy one which you can prepare on a Sunday for a few lunches or dinners in the week, Which is perfect for me as I'm very much a grab and run kinda person! Makes 4 Salads

  • Olive oil

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Mixed salad leaves
