Make Your Own Garden Salad


Fall is on its way, but I’m still lounging outside on the deck like a cat. I’ve moved back in with my parents to save money for grad school, and one of the perks has been enjoying the beautiful backyard! It’s a surprising and delightful time to take a breath and enjoy a slower pace. It’s also giving me time to try introducing more food back in.

One of the big challenges of food restrictions is FLAVOR. Ah! Flavor is truly the spice of life. Trying to find sauces, spices, and dressings can be incredibly discouraging.

I’ve made a break-through in my own homemade salad dressing. It’s made from single, raw ingredients, so it’s fresh and you know exactly what you’re eating!


Garden Salad:

Leafs: Romaine lettuce, fresh basil

Fruits/veggies: Tomato, avocado, pinto beans, salt and pepper to flavor


Drizzle of agave or honey (agave is easier to spread and stir), dash of salt and pepper, and avocado oil. You may also add a squirt of lemon and/or vinegar.

That’s it!
