What makes a great salad?
My roasted beet salad is a crowd pleaser
Comfort food has been my go-to meal recently. I have a soft spot for fresh baked bread and sweets. The time has come, however, to get back to eating good food that is also good for me. I took a trip to my local farmers market, practicing social distancing of course, to pick out some tasty vegetables. Looking around the market, I decided that a salad was in order. I like to pick out a mixture of color and texture for my salad.
Just because it's easy doesn't mean it can't be a an enjoyable experience. It's not enough to make a decent salad; let's make a great salad every time!
Follow this simple formula to compose the perfect salad. Enjoy.
Here's the basics:
Fresh greens: I like to have a mix of color and texture.
Dressing: Keep it simple and let the vegetables be the star of the show.
Crunchies: seeds, nuts, croutons, granola, etc.
Optional: meat, cheese, dried fruit, roasted vegetables, pickled vegetables, etc.
Simple, fun, delicious
