Lunch time rainbow salad bursting with goodness to compliment this sunny Tuesday!
This ones a simply one… To begin I simply blended cashews, tomatoes, green pepper, carrots, cucumber and cabbage and dressed them with salt, pepper, lemon and a squeeze of agave.
For the colourful and delicious courgette pasta just grab yourself a potato peeler and make some pretty ribbons.
