Kitchen Sink Salad Recipe

After what feels like a month away from home, it’s so nice to be back in my own kitchen making my own food! 😊 Lately, I find that my schedule has been super hectic, so getting back into the kitchen today made me feel super happy and at ease! Sometimes I like to think cooking is like free therapy- you get to listen to your favorite playlist (check out my Spotify playlist on my Instagram highlights) and be with your own thoughts. 

Today, I made my “kitchen sink” salad – basically whatever is in my fridge + leftovers and throw it into a big bowl with some lettuce. In the salad I have my BBQ lemon garlic shrimp, fresh tomatoes + cilantro, roasted cauliflower with beet tahini, homemade guacamole and roasted sweet potatoes! Topped with a tiny bit of EVOO and freshly squeezed lemon. Recipe for all of the salad elements below! Don’t forget to save + share the recipe! 😘 xx
