To celebrate the start of summer, I'm sharing my favorite salad recipe with you. This is an adaptation of a recipe I first learned in Morocco on a Real Food Adventure by Intrepid Travel. It's easy, healthy and a delicious appetizer or side dish.

Chop and prepare the salad ingredients below, then place into a bowl.

  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1-2 cucumbers, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/8 cup red onion (or green onion if you prefer)
  • 1 small avocado, diced (optional)
  • 1-2 sprigs of cilantro (optional)

Combine the following dressing ingredients in a separate bowl.

  • 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar (or white vinegar)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 fresh lemon or lime
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin

I'd recommend tasting the dressing and adjusting proportions based on your palate (I go heavier on the cumin because it's my favorite spice) Drizzle the dressing over the salad and mix well. Chill for 30 minutes, then devour! I love how the dressing really brings out the freshness of the vegetables instead of covering up their flavor.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
