Project Description

If you are looking for a dish that is jam packed with flavour, that really ups your vegetable content for the day, Rainbow Pickle Salad is the way to do it! It is so easy to make, even the kids can do it! Pickles provide some incredible heath benefits as they contain plenty of vitamins and minerals. They are an amazing source of probiotics which is great for your gut health. As well as supporting a healthy liver, they are well known as a wonderful source of anti-oxidants. I pickle a lot of vegetables, and I will post my pickling recipes soon, and also a more detailed post on the health benefits of pickles. But be warned, once you start eating your own pickled vegetables, you won’t want to stop!
