Tomato, Peppers & Avocado Salad

A Few Words…

I had friends over for dinner the other night and although I had two yummy salads on my menu, I wanted to add another salad. You can never have too many!

This is such an easy side dish to put together and the ingredients don’t have to be accurate-you’re not baking a cake!

I find that adding bright salads like this one,  are always good to add to meals. Not only do they add variety, but I find that having healthy choices available really helps me to not over indulge in all the other ‘goodies’ that are on the table-this tip may help you too!
