The beauty of this recipe is how it doesn’t really require an accurate amount of ingredients and is a great way to empty your fridge and pantry. It ends up being a really colourful dish that’s perfect for picnics or quick lunches that you can wolf down after an intense ballet class.
The “cooking” of this can be done concurrently and hence it saves a lot of your time.
This dish is perfect for those who have ballet classes scheduled “in between” meal times. If you’re like me, you often struggle to fuel up properly before, say a 630pm-800pm class. On those days, a small portion of this salad is enough to provide the fuel for an intense class and yet it’s not too heavy to get in the way of dancing.
