Recipe Idea: Daily Green Salad Good For You
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop, talking about Green Salad. There are so many options for a salad, aren’t there? You can include just about any vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. When I go to a salad bar, I like it when they have cooked green peas, too. Homemade Coutons are an excellent addition to a Green Salad.
I prefer crispy lettuces, such as romaine, kale, radicchio, and even iceberg lettuce (not alone, however). The ready-made mixes are good as long as they include some of the crispy varieties. I’m not overly fond of Boston lettuce or the mesclun mixes, at least not alone, because they have a wimpy texture. But I can always jazz up a salad with some other veggies, like broccoli, cauliflower, celery and carrots. In the summer, I often add fresh basil or fresh parsley to my salads. And I absolutely love avocado diced up over the top.
