Fruity Vegetable Salad

Today, there was a potluck lunch meet with my school alumni group. And I had to make a salad.

So, I made a healthy and colourful mixed fruit and vegetable salad. I have added roasted nuts as a garnish to give a good crunch.

This a wholesome and a complete salad which can be had as a light meal.

I was really when everyone appreciated and said that the salad was good and it was a pleasure seeing everyone enjoy the salad:)
