All in favor of starting the year out healthy, say "I!" Now, I know that this is a fashion blog (mostly), but sometimes food can be beautiful and fashionable, right? Well I like to think so. Check out my latest salad design below.
Gorgeous, right?! Healthy doesn't always have to be boring or unattractive, or unappetizing for that matter. The recipe for the above salad is just as easy on the eyes, as it is on your taste buds.
Here's how to recreate it.
Grilled Gorgeous Salad
1 grilled eggplant, chopped
1 grilled red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 a grilled red onion, chopped
2 cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup of roasted pine nuts
1/4 cup of goat cheese, crumbled
5 big basil leaves, julienned
Arrange the above ingredients together in a serving plate. Toss with your basic lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Season with freshly cracked pepper and sea salt.
