Salads get a bad reputation for being boring. If you tend to agree with that notion, it may be that you just haven’t found the right recipes for you! There are so many ways to add complex flavors into your salads, making them anything but boring. The combinations are endless. From fruit to spices and meats to crunchy veggies, salads are the easiest way to mix together your favorite flavors.
Though not all salads are healthy, many will provide vitamins and nutrients that may be lacking from your diet if you don’t regularly eat your fruits and vegetables. Kale is rich in fiber and can help lower cholesterol. Strawberries, blueberries, and tomatoes are all loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants. Cheese, eggs and chicken are all great sources of protein. Beets are a great source of folate, iron, and vitamin B6. And that’s just a few of the delicious ingredients that can go into salads!
And because we’re all busy, one thing we love most about salads is how quick they are to put together! Just chop, combine, and toss with your favorite dressing!
