Viva Repubica Dominicana!!!

Right now I am visiting the beautiful Dominican Republic...basically my home away from home. After many visits to this beautiful land, I have come to realize different things about the culture, people, and of course the food! Speaking of eating, it is done here quite a lot. And encouraged. Women who are shapely, curvy, and healthy are praised, while being thin, skinny, or under weight is seen as less attractive. It is a refreshing perspective to take in, especially while being here in April when the average temp is 95 degrees....and wearing less clothing is not an option but a necessity!

To try a Dominican style fruit salad, use this simple recipe

1= Get a papaya, pineapple, banana, watermelon, and mango and cut in into small pieces

2= Sprinkle with honey or agave nectar

And that´s it! Simple, and delicious. Very much a testament to the country itself.
