Truth be told, I do love a good salad. In fact, when we go out for dinner I will normally order a salad. Not because I’m trying to be healthy, but just because if it has all the right “fixings” in it, it’s gonna be one good salad!
To me, a dynamite salad has multiple components. If it doesn’t have these, I won’t eat it. I’m kinda a salad snob in that way.
- Layers of flavor!!! Don’t just give me iceberg lettuce with carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers. Yuck! There’s nothing there. Give me some flavor. Give me something to think about, a reason to dig through my salad to get that last roasted beet or whatever it is.
- Dynamite Dressing. It’s as simple as that. The sauce makes the salad. Bad sauce. Bad Salad. Good Sauce. Good Salad. Period.
- NO Iceberg, unless it’s a Wedge Salad. Then all is forgiven. But really ya’ll, there is no nutritional value at all in iceberg (or romaine) buy the stuff that looks like weeds and get over it. It has flavor to it, nutrients, and who knows, you might like it!
All that to say. Salads can be a lot more than Rabbit Food. They can be a bomb of flavor going off. And I guarantee if you pick the right ones you’ll be craving salad from here on out!
