An Actual Fruit Salad

An Actual Fruit Salad

When I was very little, I used to be very confused about why I was served a fruit salad with no — salad. Learning later on that salads did not necessarily need to have the leafy greens gave me a short period of salad identity confusion, but to remedy my anxieties I just turn to my favorite type of salad. So easy to make, no need of fancy dressing, bright colors, and filling enough to not have you reaching for the potato chips. Oh right, and its all healthy and stuff.

I used a spring salad mix, sometimes I use just plain spinach, but it depends on the texture you prefer. Just cut up one avocado, 4 strawberries and toss those in. For the dressing take about a half cup of orange juice and a tablespoon of avocado oil (olive oil can substitute), a pinch or two of sugar, and mix it up. You can always adjust the portions to your preference. Many times I end up adding a little more oil to get that dressing consistency. Then just lightly pour that baby over and you have your fruit salad!

Sidenote: Add edamame for a different texture or salt them for side snacks as seen in the photo.

Step back Colonel, its Korean Fried Chicken

For those of you who haven’t already experienced this wonderful phenomenon, let me introduce you to korean fried chicken. This yummy dish was had at Bon Chon on 38th street, but there are other restaurants around the city as well because its so damn good.

Some people don’t believe that these are chicken wings since they look like baby drumsticks (the restaurants have drumsticks too, though!) but think of the chicken’s upper wing/arm? and that’s what you’re getting. A little plump goodness that’s unique because of its soy&garlic flavor or its spicy option. Want both? No problem. Bon Chon gives you the option to do some garlic and some spicy in the same order. You’re also served with a small metal bucket to put away your bones. I personally don’t use it because sometimes I like seeing how much I’ve gotten through…other times I very disgusted with myself but we all move on 🙂 The last finishing touch that makes eating Bon Chon chicken such a satisfying, heart-warming, belly-filling, experience are the radish cubes, a perfect way to diffuse the spiciness or clean your palette for the next crunchy, flavorful bite.
