Mix it up: side salad

ensalada 1

Salads often are a great dilemma for me. I wash my greens, toss them in a bowl and that’s it. Normally I open my fridge, grab some vegetables and mix them up.

Well let me tell you that sometimes I find myself with no inspiration at all and the mix gets repetitive.

So here I present you an easy side salad I made today for lunch to break the daily routine.

ensalada 2


-6 big leaves of lettuce (choose the one you like the most)

– A handful arugula

– 3 small leaves of red radicchio

– 1 1/2 tomatoes

– 1 cucumber

– 1 small onion

– 3 mushrooms

– 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– Pinch of salt

-1/2 lemon


1) Cut all ingredients. (I like to cut my green with my hands because sometimes the knife makes them soggy.)

2) In a small pan roast the sesame seeds until they become golden.(That my friend brings out the real sesame flavor.) Toss the vegetables in a bowl and sprinkle them with you roasted sesame seeds.

3) Squeeze the lemon and add the olive oil and salt.

Fantastic right?
