It’s so important to add colourful foods to your diet. Bright greens are considered super foods. In other words, brain food. They do your body good and you will see amazing results when you incorporate these foods every day.

We are in the process of growing our fresh herbs (cilantro, dill, basil, and more). I can’t wait to use them and preserve them for future recipes. The cilantro you see in this salad is dried cilantro. It’s not the same as fresh, but it works. Also, my husband used the last red onion so I was stuck using white onion. I recommend using red for salads.

It’s a salad, so adding different ingredients each time will definitely work. I’ve had strawberry and almond salads, and wow. It all depends on your taste buds and also making salads exciting to eat. There are just so many ways you can make them crunchy and filling. On top of it all, you can finally be satisfied after eating a salad, and most definitely proud of yourself for eating it!
