What a delicious salad, but more than that it is beautiful. You know what they say, "please the eye". The colors and fresh taste of this will make you know spring is here. Great with anything hot off the grill or to brown bag with a few slices of ham, steak, turkey, etc.
All the vegetables in this salad are shredded, torn, chopped or sliced. Cabbage, spinach, bell pepper and carrots are tossed with balsamic vinaigrette and topped with pumpkin seeds.
