My obsession with green food and salads has grown over the last few months since I commenced my fitness challenge.
I’ve discovered there are so many different kinds of healthy vegetables, herbs, and fruits out there that you can combine in a lot of ways for health and fitness.
These foods aren’t tasteless or boring either if you get a little creative.
You can add wheat, quinoa, beans, or salmon, chicken, and other meats to the salads to turn it into a proper meal. Personally, I prefer my salads without meat.
This week, I decided to experiment with only green ingredients and see what the taste buds have to say afterward. I used 4 ingredients; full of vitamins and nutrients.
Crunchy Green Salad with Lime Cilantro Dressing
- Baby Spinach – 1 packet
- Cucumber – 1, cubed
- Arugula (rocket leaves) – 1 packet
- Cilantro – 1 bunch, finely chopped
I eyeballed the quantities. I’m usually cooking for only myself so I use very small quantities in order not to waste food.
Lime Cilantro Dressing
Don’t know what my deal with cilantro is but I add it to everything nowadays. For this dressing, I used a recipe from YouTube with a few modifications.
It turned out about ½ a cup of rich green dressing. I used some for the salad and used the rest to marinate salmon the next day.
Below is a picture of the final salad before and after I’d tossed it with the dressing. It tasted so good.
