This simple, healthy, goat’s feta and walnut salad can be whipped up in 10 minutes. The term eat a rainbow really comes into account with this salad. It’s important to eat a variety of coloured vegetables to ensure you get a wide range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This salad is paired with a cleansing dressing and healthy fats from the olive oil and walnuts. Healthy fats are essential for our wellbeing and actually help our body absorb certain vitamins (A, D, E & K), so never skimp on healthy fats!
