spiced up garden salad.

29 Oct

They say not to judge a book by it’s cover and I’m guessing that also applies to not judging food by how it looks. However, i think we all do that when we see something that looks appetizing.

This dish that i am planning on preparing looks absolutely amazing in the pictures. Based on my first attempt at cooking, i can say that what i cook definently does NOT look as appetizing as what it is supposed to look like, but maybe that’s just due to the fact that i made green macaroni. 

I saw this recipe and thought ” how bad could i mess up a salad?” And that is where this inspiration came from. Everyone loves salad, and the way it makes you feel healthy even if you eat double your weight in it. If your an avocado lover like myself, this garden salad with red onions, tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro lime dressing sounds right up your alley.


Here’s what you need to make the salad:


1 head of lettuce, washed and leaves cut or torn into large pieces

2 tomatoes, sliced or quartered

½ red onion, thinly sliced

1 avocado, sliced or diced

1 tbs finely chopped cilantro

Juice of 2 limes

2 tbs olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


And here is what the salad is supposed to look like:




Stay tuned for my version of the salad! This salad seems like an easy salad to make if you aren’t sure what to make for dinner, or if you want it to accomidate a larger dish. Possibly as an appitizer? Let’s see how it turns out…
