Rainbow veg & cheese salad

Perfect salad for hot weather and you can get pretty much your five a day in just one meal. Lots of colourful vegetables and jam packed with nutrients. Vitamin c, beta-carotene and vitamin E, heart healthy fats and cheese for protein. You can also add some chicken to this if you like. We've had it with and without.
