Anyone with health issues knows eating healthy is important so let’s explore what we know about salads. Personally, salads, were not my first choice when I was younger. To my way of thinking lettuce was food best given for bunnies. Funny how our thoughts change with age.
These days, I find that I crave veggies and salads more and more. In fact, one of my favourite dinner meals is a salad that is loaded with all sorts of interesting things. A big bowl of healthy goodness!
This is my latest dinner salad. The base is lettuce with tomatoes, potatoes, cucumber, celery, onions, chicken, eggs, avocado. Topped with Paul Newman’s oil and vinegar dressing. YUMMY!
Deciding what to put into salads to make them interesting is endless. I really enjoy the inspired ideas of The Domestic Geek. Her recipes are fun and fairly easy.
