Vegan Rainbow Power Salad

Have you hopped on the Rainbow Bandwagon yet?? The Rainbow trend has been going around for such a long time now that I couldn’t resist and decided to make my very own Rainbow Salad.

Vegan Rainbow Power Salad - power bowl filled with protein and antioxidants!

This colorful and delicious rainbow salad is not only vegan but also packed with a lot of protein. I have added a lot of fun colors to this salad – which is perfect for Spring and Summer.

The only chopping that I really did was cutting the bell peppers and lettuce. I was thinking of adding purple cabbage to this – but well, I’m not a huge fan of cabbage. So I decided to toss in some delicious blueberries which have amazing antioxidant properties. Also, the chickpeas or garbanzo beans are a great source of Protein – hence the name – Rainbow Power Salad!

I haven’t added onion in this salad. If I remember correctly, I think I got bored to cut an onion! Yes, guys – I get bored to cut even half an onion! But hey – if it’s going to save some time, why not right?

Now that spring has begun, I wanted to keep the dressing simple and light by making a light and zesty lemony-garlicky olive oil dressing. Ahh, the joys of clean eating! It can’t get any simpler than this.

If you aren’t a fan of garlic, you can skip the garlic from the dressing if you want.

And then to make it even cuter, I mixed it all up and put it in this heart bowl and devoured it.
