We love a colorful salad! The more colors in a salad the more nutrients the salad contains. This salad does not disappoint, with vibrant red tomatoes, bright orange carrots, pretty red onions and bright green avocados. With the added vitamin C of the lime and lemon juice, this salad is like a bowl-full of good nutrition!
