I am always posting about main meals or especially desserts. Side dishes and salads should really be more on With A Blast !

Seeing as we eat salads all-year round in SA and lots of our Northern hemisphere readers are at the start of Spring now, I decided to share some of our favorite salad recipes, starting now.

We all love this recipe and it is not only delicious ! But the salad is also very colorful and you can make it a day or two before you want to serve it.

Great make-ahead dish to take with to family or friend gatherings !

To get the most of the taste, the salad has to marinade at least 8 hours. I normally make it the night before, and during the following day, I would give it a gentle shake every now and then.

Use a marinating bowl – they’re great to simple turn over every now and then, or whenever you pass by the refrigerator.
