Four reasons I absolutely love making this salad:
1. It is 113 calories per serving (so a favourite with my girlfriends when they come over for lunch), gluten free, dairy free, nut free and super healthy.
2. It is so refreshing (on hot sunny days in particular)
3. It is so quick to prepare
4. It looks so pretty (especially when served on vintage china plates)
