I‘ll be the first one to tell you, I’m not a salad fan.
Seriously! I’m a vegetarian & a foodie…it might seem surprising to see those two labels together, but it’s possible, homies! In my mind, I’ve always equated greens, kale and salad to “grass”. Yea, I’m a vegetarian alrite, but not a herbivore, thank you very much.
This means when I’m out at restaurants, I’m the chick that always orders things other than “just salad”. You know, real food! Carbs & I have a special relationship. Trans-fats have a special place in my heart….err…literally. Gluten? Bring it on, baby.
So why am I, such a greens & salad hater posting about Salads? Well, I had a wake up call to eat healthy, i.e., good bye french fries, nice to fre….err…okay I don’t need to finish that sentence! (Now I’m bright red in the face.) MY POINT IS….I realized I was doing Salads wrong all along. You don’t have to feel like a cow chewing on the same pile of flavorless hay & grass over and over again. It’s possible to actually eat healthy & have it be delicioso. And people, if there’s one thing you can’t compromise on in life, it’s flavor! Spice is life, homesquad.
To quote a former US presidential candidate: please clap.
Here is a salad that’s been tried and tested on the flavor-Mojo scale and it passed with flying colors!! It’s got beetroots, blueberries, heirloom tomatoes & greens. And a home made lemon-olive oil dressing. It’s ridiculously healthy, packed with anti-oxidants, easy to whip up. Most importantly, it’s scrumptious! I hope you enjoy it, as much as I did.
Happy Salad-Mojo folks!
