Mix Green Salad with Corn and walnuts

For salad lovers like me a green salad with corn, mixed bell peppers, walnuts is always a treat.

I came up with this recipe when I had a similar one in a restaurant. I made my own version of the salad, and here it is for all of you. It is a low carb, gluten free salad.

I used Arugula, spinach, lettuce, red salad leaves, mixed bell peppers and corn. This also gives a nice color to the salad. I added walnuts to give a nice crunch to the salad.

The salad is healthy,  full of nutrients, mineral, omega, iron and yes very colorful !!
