EASY FRESH SUMMER SALAD #TuesdayTummy



I’m going to feature an array of salads on the blog, not only for its nutritious significance, but also to show that a salad need not be boring. As a child, we rarely ever served a lunch or dinner without a salad, and it is a tradition I have gotten so used to, and that I’m grateful to my parents for. And the beauty of a perfect salad recipe is that you can add as much of the ingredients you love as you want, hence, the possibilities to healthy eating are endless.

INGREDIENTS

  • -       ripe tomatoes (cut into chunks)
  • -       cucumber (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • -       Granny Smith green apple
  • -       kesong puti (soft white carabao cheese)
  • -       Extra virgin olive oil
  • -       Red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • -       5 leaves fresh  (finely chopped)
  • -       salt and pepper to taste

For this recipe, you can also add other ingredients, like pine nuts, green or red bell pepper or avocado – again, the whole point of a good salad is that its not only healthy, but also tasty, so always feel free to modify the ingredients a little to suit your taste.

1.     Combine tomatoes, onions, cucumber in a large bowl.
2.     Place extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a separate bowl and whisk until combined.
3.     Drizzle dressing on the salad and mix lightly to distribute evenly.
4.     Crumble white cheese and top salad.


Enjoy!
