Jamaican Activities In
Issue #25 - April 1, 2013
Jamaican activities in Monetgo Bay means going off the beaten track to see some of my island's spectacular assets. Hike our mist-swathed mountains, trek through our limestone forest viewing our birds filled mahogany trees and flower, go sailing and do some sport-fishing. Top your day off with a nice cold red stripe beer or lemonade, and enjoy our great reggae music.

Your Jamaican activities in Montego Bay can be diverse. You have the choice of climbing our waterfalls to swimming in our river, hike over the hills of this island, stopping along the way to enjoy our food.
The Jamaican countryside is a joy to explore as it is also scenic. Of course we are also the jewel of the Caribbean with white powdery sandy beaches but Jamaica is so much more.
Read more of a fun day of activity you can enjoy while you are visiting my island in the sun.

Ways to Spice Up Any Salad
Opt For Unusual Greens
Experiment with arugula (which has a peppery taste), endive (which can taste bitter) or spinach. You can combine different types of greens in your salad, choose whatever you like and mix.
Toss In A Special Ingredient
Add as much color as possible but do not forget about flavor. For adding great flavors think of dried cranberries, jerk chicken, curried shrimp, grilled or roasted vegetables, mango or papaya.
Make Your Own Dressing
You can whip together your own delicious topping.
Mix three parts oil, (consider olive, walnut or flaxseed) with one part vinegar, (red wine, apple, raspberry or tomato) or citrus juice (try mandarin orange, lemon, lime). Then add a little brown sugar, and herbs like cilantro, oregano or sea salt to taste.
Make It The Main Course
Instead of relegating salad to a side dish, make it the main dish and include a lean meat or tofu.
If you are having a small dinner party you can offer your guests an array of salads to chose from over the course of dinner, and ending with a fruit salad for dessert.
