Do you like to experiment with food? Why not try some salad creations? Here’s a fun way to make a healthy choice meal, at your taste preference. Many people think of salads as just lettuce and some raw veggies. Actually, that couldn’t be farther from the truth if you just tap into your inner creativity. Try starting with some salad basics (you know, the leafy and raw veggie things, that everyone thinks of when you say the word “salad”) and then add, what I like to refer to as “the guts”.
One of the best things about salads is there is really no limit to the combinations you can do. If you are anything like me, the guts of the salad are the best part!
Directions: Mix it any combinations below to your desired taste. See who can come up with the most creative salad.
