The Bella Hadid salad. By now you all know that I absolutely love salads and food trends. You have seen me share various celebrity salads that I have been inspired by online. Although I do not follow pop-culture or celebrities, I do appreciate great food, so I am here to share another one with you. When I first stumbled upon this salad, I didn’t think the flavors would work as well, but I was totally wrong.

Bella Hadid’s Favourite Salad

This salad exceeded my expectations and I found myself making it all week long. It was so easy to make and absolutely perfect for anyone that doesn't have much time.

Prep Time: 10 minutes


  • Small box of baby arugula (5oz box or 142 grams), or spring mix
  • ½ small thinly sliced or chopped red bell pepper
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parmigiano, from a block
  • 1 cup of finely diced cucumber
  • ½ diced avocado , leave out if allergic
  • pinch of salt
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • olive oil to taste , about 2 tablespoons
  • drizzle of balsamic glaze or balsamic vinegar


  • Chop up the bell pepper into thin slices or dice them if you wish.
  • Slice or dice the cucumber and avocado, add it to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Add salt to taste, lemon juice, olive oil and toss. Drizzle on balsamic glaze and enjoy.
  • This salad should be eaten right away as the arugula will wilt. If you want a salad that will hold up better in the fridge please use kale instead.



Feel free to use any protein like chicken, chickpeas, steak, or anything you like.
You can toast walnuts or any nuts as well and make it accordingly to taste.
Feel free to use mixed greens or leafy greens you enjoy if you don’t like arugula. Fresh parmigiano is a must in here

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    The balsamic was way too sweet for me. I ditched it and substituted with lemon ice and apple cider vinegar the next time. Much better. The favors of the salad come out.
