Here’s my handy guide to salad making.
examples: spinach, baby kale, mix greens, spring mix, but PLEASE not iceberg!
Fruit – I love fruit in my salads
examples: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or apple slices are some of my favorites
Protein – for me, a salad is not complete with some protein
examples: marinated tofu, white beans, chickpeas, black beans
Seeds or nuts – my version of croutons 🙂
examples: sesame seeds, pistachios, candied walnuts, sunflower seeds
Spice it up! – If you like a little kick, add some!
examples: shallots, red onion, garlic
Other – other fun things to add
examples: quinoa, cauliflower rice, corn, grape tomatoes, radish
Avocado – goes with any salad if you ask me!
Dressing – there’s so many choices, my personal favorite is olive oil and pineapple white balsamic vinegar
