Rainbow Collard Green Salad

rainbow-collardsHere we go! Post number one for Vegan MoFo 2014, the vegan month of food. I'll be posting something at least every week day, and if possible EVERY day in September.

This salad is the tastiest after it has marinated for a bit. Make it earlier in the day for a quick meal later. Use as many colorful veggies as you have available.
