They are a concoction of crunchy, sweet, sour, tart, earthy and super fresh.
They are a boost of nutrition that does the body (and mind) good.
I recommend having at least 1 salad every, damn day 🙂
In fact, I now have one at every meal and make half my plate a salad!
In a single bite of a salad, you can enjoy many different layers of goodness, texture and nourishment.
I love salads now, but have had to learn to find a way to love them!
I hope you enjoy these salads and are inspired by them to make your own.
Add all ingredients into a mason jar and shake to emulsify.
Its time to assemble your salad.
Grab a big bowl and add your cleaned, spun, dried greens of choice. (You can do this on meal prep day to any of the greens except mixed greens and arugula and spinach)
Drizzle your dressing of choice around the sides of the bowl versus directly onto the leaves themselves. Then use your hands or 2 big wooded spoons to gently toss the salad dressing onto the leaves. (When I use kale however, I get my hands up in there and massage the leaves with the dressing to break down the fibre in the kale and to allow more absorption of dressing)
Add half of your toppings of choice to the salad and toss the salad again. Then put the second half of toppings on top of the salad and serve immediately. (unless your a kale salad, and in that case, you can mingle in the fridge with your dressing on for 30 minutes until its at its ideal eating stage. It is also the only green that you can store in fridge with dressing on and enjoy the next day)
