how to make a salad that’s not boring

Here’s my handy guide to salad making.

IMG_2523Base – start with a nice, tasty green base

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
