Crunchy Chop Salad

Phew! Is anyone else tired of eating. I am not so much tired of eating... just tired of eating junk so I am off to a new start for the new year, cutting the carbs. Not cutting them out completely just cutting down big time.

1/2 Red Bell Pepper - chopped
1/2 a stalk Celery - thinly sliced
1/4 Cucumber - chopped
6 Baby Carrots - thinly sliced
Parmesan (approx 2 Tlb)
Rice vinegar (approx 1-2 Tlb)

This little salad is a total "wing it" recipe and portions are done to taste. I love vinegar so the rice vinegar is wonderful to me but may to too strong for some, if so just use less but avoid any oil based dressing.
Serve with grilled chicken or stands alone as a great lunch.

* VARIATION - add green onion, cilantro, radish, parsley or tomato.
