I am obsessed with chopped salads. First of all, I love the colours. Everything cut into small pieces really allows for each and every colour to pop in the bowl. Secondly, I love that each bite has a little of every vegetable in it. You can taste all of them together at once which is lovely.
For this chopped salad, I've included some tender bocconcini, salty feta, and my white wine vinaigrette recipe from a few weeks back. Here's the link to the vinaigrette!
Don't feel obligated to use this recipe, use whatever vinaigrette recipe you like! The salad will take to any vinaigrette you fancy! Head to the RECIPES page!
CHOPPED SALAD WITH BOCCONCINI & WHITE WINE VINAIGRETTE
As you all know, I love a good chopped salad. I love being able to get a little of everything in every bite. This chopped salad features veggies like bell peppers, zima tomatoes, and cukes, along with tender bocconcini, and my white wine vinaigrette I featured last week. It all comes together for a fresh and delicious chopped salad that makes for the perfect side to something savoury.
WATERMELON & FETA SALAD
Until this recipe, I had never actually paired watermelon with anything savoury. It's always been something I wanted to enjoy as it was, sweet, fresh, and summery. However, I decided to whip up a fresh watermelon salad and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the sweet and salty aspect of this salad. Fresh, succulent watermelon, crunchy cukes, fresh parsley and mint, and salty feta cheese, tossed in EVOO and lemon juice. The salad screams summer and is dying for a spot on your table <3
I've finally finished filming a new video and can't wait to get your opinions and comments <3 In a perfect world, I'd be able to to upload 2 - 3 videos a month but unfortunately life doesn't allow me the time to do that. This will be the last video I upload without a video editing program which I am currently scouting out right now. I found a few programs I'm interested in and will be doing more research this week to find out which program will be my best option!
Anyways, here's the episode's topics! Look for the video tomorrow <3
1. Another B.C. Chicken Farm exposed for abhorrent cruelty - Elite farms was exposed for seriously gruesome animal cruelty after a video emerged showing workers throwing, kicking, punching, making sexual gestures, and torturing chickens. The owner has since fired these individuals but animal rights groups suggest this is too little too late. Hear what I have to say as well as a few tips for purchasing eggs that DON'T come from any of these horrible factory farms!
2. Kenya making death penalty a reality for poachers - After unsuccessfully abolishing poaching with their current penalties in place, Kenya has decided to move along a law making poaching punishable by death. Poaching has steadily declined in the last 4 years thanks to current efforts so my question to you guys is, should this next step even come to be? Should we punish poachers by ending their lives or should we take solace in knowing the current methods are working? The death penalty is sever and I'm going to discuss my thoughts on this topic.
Make sure to check back tomorrow for my newest animal rights video <3
