I LOVE salads. Its funny how most people feel deprived of “real” food when eating salads but really, they’re very versatile. Quite frankly I find salad recipes pretty unnecessary. There’s no right or wrong in putting together a salad. You can put as little or as much of the foods you love. By food I mean, real food. Not a chip and candy medley.
Anyway, I stumbled upon a nice little salad chart from Cupcakes and Cashmere.
If you’re a salad newbie, I would suggest to begin by writing down all the healthy foods that you DO already love. Do you like avocados? Tomatos? Cucumber? Salmon? Beef? Nuts? Apples? With a list of the foods you already enjoy it’s easy to just throw a few of the ingredients together and whip up an amazing salad.
