How To: Study for Midterms

Hi friends! If you’re anything like me, you had a wonderful winter break, full of family, friends, and food, with one little drop of sabotage: the looming threat of midterms. Midterms start about 3 weeks after winter break ends, which means 3 weeks of teachers […]

Guacamole Greens

Guacamole Greens

Hi friends!

So, I’ve recently become obsessed with Sweetgreen since they added one to the KoP Mall, particularly the guacamole greens salad. I was hoping to make a cheaper, vegetarian option at my house, so I stole the recipe from A Beautiful Plate and gave it a shot. It worked out so well that I wanted to share it with all of you here. Here is the direct like to the recipe.

Makes 4 servings

Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 small strip of de-seeded jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup tightly-packed fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 small pinch of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Salad Ingredients:

  • a few handfuls of cherry tomato halves
  • 10 crushed tortilla chips
  • 4 bowls filled 3/4 of the way with mixed greens
  • 2 avocados
  1. Blend salad dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor until cilantro is finely chopped.
  2. Mix salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add salad dressing to large bowl. Toss.
  4. Distribute salad to four bowls.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Give the recipe a shot and let me know how it goes! What’s your favorite Sweetgreen salad? Let me know in the comments below!

When most girls have a nice dinner or semi-formal party occasion, their go-to outfit is typically the LBD (Little Black Dress): dependable, flattering, and classic. While I do have my own LBD, it’s covered in sequins and is a little too much for a nice dinner. So, I have my own trusty version of the Little Black Dress, the Little Blue Dress, a similar concept to the Little Black Dress except, you guessed it, it’s blue. I’ve worn this dress countless times, and it’s just a great thing to have in the back of your closet for a last-minute emergency or for when you simply do not have the time to shop.

XO,

Emily
