Recipe Notes
  • We diced all the vegetables using our new the Breville Sous Chef® 16 Peel & Dice from our friends at Breville Canada. It took around 1 (yes one) minute to dice it all!
  • For the dressing, I through in all the ingredients into the food processor's smaller bowl and ran the processor for about 20 seconds.
  • Feel free to add other favourite veggies or maybe even switch the parsley to cilantro. This is a versatile recipe.
