Another super quick, delicious and healthy side dish. You can serve it with any meat. I think it goes particularly nicely with a white fish.

TIP: For children present each veggies separately in little groups. Mixed salsas or salads are often too overwhelming for little children and makes the confused about what to eat. Often if they don’t like one veggies in a whole salad they refuse it as a whole package. If you put the veggies separately they can pick and choose what they fancy that day.
