Recipe: Simple Salads

As some of you know from my latest public health blog post,  I was super stoked about having a farmers’ market just ten minutes from my apartment here in Baltimore! My roommate and I went a little bit on the later side, and there were great options to choose from that I think I’ll go back earlier in the future!

When we got back to our apartment with my < $20 purchase (yes, all this in the photo was less than $20!!), I was famished and ready to eat, and since I had bought two bags of mixed greens, you can say I was in the mood for some salad! I dug up the cauliflower and cucumbers in my fridge and got to work.

So proud of my farmer’s market haul on Sunday!

“Ingredients” (do people say ingredients when it comes to prepping a meal that doesn’t need to be cooked?)

  • mixed greens
  • tomatoes (apparently, I bought Green Zebra tomatoes, how cool is that name?!)
  • kale
  • cauliflower
  • cucumber
  • dressing (I used balsamic vinegar and oil, but I’m definitely more of a fan of Italian or French dressing hehe)

There aren’t really any steps to this besides washing and cutting up whatever veggies you decided to use, and then pouring on as much dressing as your heart desires. I definitely felt super healthy after eating that! You can definitely change up your salad ingredients by adding protein or croutons to give it some extra textures and flavors 🙂 Enjoy eating healthy!

  2. That looks amazing! Love the tomatoes 🙂 have you seen the stripy bell peppers yet? “Tiger peppers”..lol! I like French dressing, and do you add honey when you make your own? Great post 🙂

    • I haven’t seen striped bell peppers yet, but this is my first time seeing striped tomatoes! I know that graffiti eggplant is a thing, but bell peppers is new to me 🙂

      I am a fan of both French dressing (the red one) and Italian dressing, but sometimes I’ll go outside the box if I’m ordering out. Does adding honey make the salad taste too sweet?

      Thanks for reading!
