How to Make a Fabulous Salad

I perfected the art of making a fabulous salad! The secret is loading them with tons of flavor, color, and texture. Make it an experience when you eat it.

Ingredients

  • Organic greens
  • Crunchy vegetables (carrots, celery, fresh snap peas, jicama, radishes, peppers, etc.)
  • Colorful vegetables (purple cabbage, red/orange/yellow/green peppers, etc.) — (color means a greater nutritional profile, and the more colors you include in your salads, the more nutritionally dense your salad will be. Watch the video I have included below for more information.)
  • Meat that you prefer (we use Butcher Box meat)
  • Pastured eggs
  • Nuts or seeds (I added my Curry Spiced Pumpkin Seeds)
  • Chia seeds (I love chia seeds because they have omega-3’s, antioxidants, and fiber!)
  • Nutritional yeast (I love nutritional yeast because it provides you with B-vitamins, and it also adds a cheesy umami flavor.)
  • Dressing:
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt

Instructions

    1. In a large salad bowl, add all of the vegetables and additional ingredients that you would like.
    2. Arrange it to be appealing to the eye. (It sounds funny, but I enjoy eating my salads even more when they are pretty!)
    3. Add dressing and toss. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. Something I need to do everyday- eat more salad. I had never heard of the Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning. A great way to get more of my B Vitamins. Thank you for your informative posts and also listing the Free Books on Amazon.

  2. I love salads, too, and have one every day. I just started using the nutritional yeast flakes in my salads a few days ago and it really is so good!! Love my salads and I am going to be using your tips to make it even better!
