If there is one kind of food I am totally in love with , then it has to be salad and loads of it 🙂

Adding lots of different things adds immense flavours, and each bite bursts with a different taste in your mouth.. a bit of spice from the jalapeno, a bit of crunch from the sunflower seeds and then that little bit of sweet from the raisins, its is truly fabulous.

I can never tire of eating it.
