Salads have a reputation of being dry and boring, but that doesn’t have to be the case. With the right ingredients and dressing I guarantee that you’ll be looking forward to salad dinners! Here are my favorite salad ingredients to take your bowl from bland to grand!
Whether you like them sweet or sour, apples add the perfect crispy juiciness.
There’s nothing more summery than watermelon – especially when added to a salad.
Berries are amazing in salads, particularly fresh raspberries and strawberries.
Avocados add a smooth, rich texture to your salad to complement the crispy vegetables.
Pomegranate seeds add both taste and juiciness – you barely need a dressing.
Shrimp is a great way to incorporate some protein in your salad, and also adds a ton of flavor.
If you feel like salads don’t keep you full long enough, try adding in some cubed sweet potato.
Egg is another good way to make sure the salad fills you up, and add some extra protein at the same time.
Dried cranberries make for a perfect salad topping to bring in more sweetness.
Top your salad with walnuts, preferably combined with the dried cranberries mentioned above and some honey dressing, and you’re good to go.
