Rainbow Salad with Hummus Avocado Dip / Dressing

There’s always a story behind a new recipe creation. This one is inspired by 2 events.

Firstly a hostess that ‘s trying her best to be on a Paleo diet but wanted more Asian familiar recipes, and secondly, the plantbased foodporn feeds I have been getting on my IG account. Presenting vegetables in a variety of colours can be a real turn on I reckon.

So here you go.
