Fresh Vegetable Salad

I usually love eating salads, but sometimes I get bored of eating the same thing over and over again.  This fresh vegetable salad recipe, however, featuring flavors that pop, is delicious! Just thinking about the taste of all the vegetables mixed with balsamic vinegar and sunflower seeds makes my mouth water! I never get tired of this recipe. You can change the vegetables to whatever you want in your salad (great if you have any picky eaters in your house!).  With all the variety, I can always eat healthy salads, and I don’t have to get tired of what I’m eating (finally!). Let’s get started with this scrumptious vegetable salad recipe!

My favorite part of this salad is the inclusion of sunflower seeds! They give the salad a “crunch” factor that adds to the crunchiness of the fresh vegetables. The balsamic vinegar is also yummy on this salad because the veggies just soak the dressing in. I’d love to know which vegetables you decided to use in your salad so please comment below if you try this recipe out. I hope you enjoy this fresh vegetable salad!

Ingredients

3 small cucumbers

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes

1 green onion or scallion

1 avocado

1 green pepper

1 tbsp sunflower seeds

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Salt

Pepper

Instructions

1

Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, and then slice them into half moon slices. You can use small cucumbers or 1  large English cucumber.

2

Cut the tomatoes in half. I like the sweet taste of the cherry tomatoes, but you can use any type of tomato you prefer. If you use another variety, I would seed the tomatoes.

3

Chop the green onion using both the green and white part of the onion.

4

Cut the avocado into small pieces.

5

Cut the green pepper into small pieces.

6

Combine all the vegetables into a bowl large enough to toss in. Toss with the balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then top with the sunflower seeds. Enjoy!
