I think many of us are aware that health is wealth and now it’s nice to know that there is an increasing population of people who are becoming health conscious. As you can notice there is now a growing number of businesses who offer healthy stuffs. I notice that there is also a scarcity of lemons in the supermarket here in the Philippines since drinking lemon water is now becoming a trend here specially when people found out that it helps reduce belly fat which is a dilemma of a lot people I guess . One of the theories of the law of supply and demand is being seen and feel. Generally, if there is a low supply and a high demand, the price will be high. This applies to lemon. lettuce and all the organic vegetables that is being sold in the market specially if it is not harvest season for a specific type of fruits or vegetable or if is not a home grown produce. Okay stop…before I dig deeper on some technicalities of the theories of economics. I should now proceed on the main purpose of this post and that is to share with you one of my healthy salad recipe. I call this my Healthy Garden Salad Overload.
The Ingredients are:
For the Salad base
1 medium size of ripe avocado slice into dices
bunch of grapes (red or green will do)
fresh romaine lettuce
2-3 medium size of ripe mangoes slice into dices
3 medium size of tomatoes slice
1/2 medium size white onion
1 can corned tuna in oil
grated cheese (parmesan or cheddar)
For the Dressing
2-3 tables spoon of extra virgin olive oil
2 table spoon of organic apple cider vinegar
3 table spoon of organic honey
2-3 table spoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
And for the Directions:
Combine all the salad base in a large bowl and toss it well. Make sure that each of the fruits and vegetable should be in bite sizes. The more dense vegetables may need to be cut thinner so as to allow the flavors to penetrate and soften the product. For the dressing it is optional, you can mixed together with the fresh produce or you can set it aside and just season your own plate or bowl according to your taste. Top it off with some grated cheese and enjoy!
And that is my oh so easy! oh so healthy! and definitely oh so yummy! Garden Salad Overload. Till next time!
