Spruce Up Your Salads

Tired of the same salads ? Salads do not have to be boring. There are several ways to put a creative touch on them.  You can use a variety of dark greens and herbs for your salad. Spinach, kale, arugula, basil, and romaine lettuce are a few to try.  Adding different fruits can also bring life to a bland salad. Try mixing in berries, apples, sliced lemons, and any other fruit variety into your salad. Nuts, such as almonds and pecans, are also a fun touch  for a salad and add protein.  Think outside the box when it comes to meat selections for your salad. Instead of the usual chicken, try salmon or shrimp. To add a spicy kick to your salad peppers are a great choice.  When choosing dressing you want to stay away from cream based dressing and stick with vinaigrettes. Raspberry vinaigrette is an excellent choice. I hope everyone finds these creative tips helpful to spruce up their salads!
