Don’t want to cook? Too overheated and dizzy from the summer heat? Don't want hot food? Or you just want a super nice side dish? Well here you go, a colourful springy and summery side dish (which of course can be devoured as a lunch or main for 2 or 1).

This summer I’m gonna focus a lot on healthy, easy and very colourful salads. What I usually do is use 1 or 2 typical main salad ingredients, here fx the tomato and cucumber, but I always add one fruity ingredient and one kind of nut or seed an dried fruit, and a special dressing that pairs well with it ! So if you’re just a bit like me and just loathe the summer heat and need something cooling and fresh, this is it !
