Recipe Notes

*sweet potato would be a great option too
**The amounts of vegetables used in the salad are suggested and the measurements I use to make this salad. Feel free to use however much of each vegetable you like. If you prefer, you can even replace the vegetables listed for other favorites or leave them out completely. Quinoa could be used instead of brown rice.
