Rainbow Salad With Low-Fat Dressing

Rainbow Salad Recipe | Dance of Stoves
Summer is dangerously approaching, and salads become our best friends. They are the perfect dish: they are healthy, easy and quick to prepare, light and refreshing. 

The problem with salads is that sometimes we add ingredients that are not so light or so healthy or use very caloric dressings. 

We get the opposite effect to what we are looking for, a dish that does not help us at all in our bikini operation, making us fatter as much or more What others.

This is not going to happen to you with this delicious rainbow salad.

I remember perfectly that years ago I went to a famous fast food restaurant and since I was on a diet I ordered a salad instead of a hamburger with fries (I was not vegetarian at the time). 

After eating the salad, I took to looking at the calories. I had to compare it with the menu I used to order, and I was scared to see that both options had practically the same calories, my joy in a well.

The cheese and dressing were responsible for most of the fat and calories in my salad.

The dressing is low in fat and has only three ingredients: tomato, onion and basil. It is delicious, and you can abuse it without fear

We do not add salt because we like the flavour it has and because we try to avoid salt in our diet, but if you find it too bland, you can add the amount you like or even add some spice.

This salad enters your eyes; it is so beautiful that it makes you sad to eat it. Our dishes must be full of colour, which means eating a varied diet, full of life and many different nutrients.

You can use any fruit or vegetable that you can think of; this time, we have used tomatoes, carrots, yellow bell peppers, avocado, red onion, blueberries and spinach (they don't look much, but they are below the rest of the ingredients).

Fat-free raw vegan dressing | Dance of Stoves
Olive oil is very healthy, incredibly raw, but at the end of the day, it is fat, so if we abuse it, we will turn our salads into very fatty dishes, something that we must avoid, especially if we want to lose weight.

I also use oil to dress my salads, but I like to have several options, and this dressing is one of my favourites. It has a flavour similar to gazpacho, although it is softer, and the basil gives it an exceptional touch.

I like to try new combinations and ingredients when I make my salads, it is the first time I have used blueberries, and it will not be the last. Until now, I've only used them to make sweet recipes like this blueberry smoothie.

If you can't find blueberries or are out of your budget, you can use strawberries (as in our spring salad) or any other red fruit; if not, apple is also a great option.

You can change any ingredient even if you try to make your salads full of colour, the more colours there are, and the more intense they are, the better.

Even if you are not on a diet you also have to eat salads, it is essential to eat raw fruits and vegetables because when cooking them we destroy part of their nutrients, they are also fast food, they take less time to prepare than most pre-cooked ones, and your health will thank you.
