We all need this one dish for Xmas

So that we don't feel awfully guilty haha =)

So xmas there was an invite as well we were asked to bring a dish so I couldn't think of anything (as usual I didn't want to make something 'unhealthy' so salad was on my mind.

of course I didn't just want to buy mix leaves and dressing (that would be embarrassing plus I looked 'lazy'). My favourite looking back was all time broccoli salad which needed to be made the night before and it does take a bit of effort if done from scratch.

I knew a vegetable like this would fair well with sourish and salty condiments plus a dressing similar but on a sweeter end to fuse with the condiments.

This was perfect.

I assembled everything together on the day itself just coz it was Christmas day and we were going to be out the whole day. This salad was for dinner.
