Fresh Garden Salad Recipe

Hi Lovely!

Ready for the new week to begin? To help you transition into the busy and hectic hustle and bustle of the daily weekday, here's a great fall garden salad recipe which takes all the ingredients and makes the whole taste superb!
 Fresh Garden Salad Recipe 

So first comes the base of the salad, the largest quantity of ingredients:

- 5-10 baby tomatoes
- a few handfuls of lettuce and mixed greens
- 1/4 of an avocado

Next comes the the second layer, the yummy dressing:

- 1 tbsp ketchup 
- 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
- 1 teaspoon plum vinegar 

Last but certainly not least comes the topping of the salad:


- a handful of almonds 
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, chopped to your choice of thinness/thickness 
- lemon zest: about half of lemon juice

Mix up all of the ingredients if you wish. I prefer to mix all of them and them keep my almonds on a separate plate so that they don't get soggy. 
And there you have it folks! A great and tasty salad that is simple, refreshingly extravagant, and soothingly satisfying to each bite, enjoy :)
