What is a rainbow salad?

A rainbow salad is a cold, raw, plant-based salad that includes all colors of the rainbow! Yup! It is as simple as it sounds. Rainbow salads are diverse and nutrient dense meals or additions to meals that have a large variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. They can include any blend of plants you have available to you or that you enjoy. The goal is just to have one plant from every color of the rainbow. Need examples?

RED: Red peppers, red beets, red grapes, red carrots, red chard (in greens too), tomatoes, goji berries

ORANGE: Turmeric, carrots, orange sweet peppers, cantaloupe, oranges

YELLOW: Carrots, mangoes, cauliflower, sweet peppers, tomatoes, squash

GREEN: (you can never have enough greens!) kale, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, peppers, parsely, chard, dandelion, collard greens, cucumbers, moringa, pistachios, basil, beet greens, celery, apples

BLUE/PURPLE: Cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, onions, eggplant, blueberries, raspberries

In season plants are normally more nutrient dense than out of season plants. Local options are best and liking your selections matters too. Choose your favorites, cut the veggies into bite size pieces and mix your salad!

We keep a large bowl of rainbow salad in our fridge with a paper towel over it throughout the week. Handfuls are always ready to grab and add to all plates that leave the kitchen.
