Delicious and healthy benefits abound, but with some foods, at times the taste just doesn’t remotely match.

Sometimes the kids are actually right.

Making a salad is not complicated. Making one that tastes really good is a lot more challenging.

It’s worth the effort because during spring and summer when we all get a chance to eat outdoors or on the family porch, having a great salad on the side eases our conscience about eating some absolutely delicious greasy or fatty foods along with mouth-watering desserts because we can justify that we still ate nutritiously due to also having the salad.

Okay, so we’ve agreed to have salad.

The beautiful vegans of the world should respect us for that as we get our toothpicks out.

“In L.A., I get a meal delivery service called Diet Designs. I like a nice butter lettuce salad with some avocado, fresh grapefruit, shredded chicken breast and raw almond slices with a sesame vinaigrette dressing. I also love juicing and am kind of obsessed with it.”… Fergie

What would be ideal is if we could eat salad alone and find that a fulfilling experience.

Tasty salads can help.


The enjoyable site realsimple.com sure came up with some intriguing ideas.

Here are six salads they suggested:

Boston Lettuce Salad With Herbs and Toasted Almonds

Romaine Salad With Tomatoes and Bacon

Mesclun Salad With Chickpeas and Dried Cherries

Spinach Salad With Avocado and Peppers

Aren’t you loving those suggestions? We are.

Most of us know that green leafy vegetables are wonderful for our bodies, tomatoes are tremendous and the right nuts sprinkled generously can out do any vitamin in a bottle.

Besides, they are fun to talk about and feel good about too.

The sales of salads are soaring so many people are in on the upward tread.

“A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl.”… Yotam Ottolenghi

At foodnavigator-usa.com they share, “US retail sales of packaged salads rose 8% to $3.7bn in the year to April 2, 2016, with a weak performance from the biggest segment, salad blends (-1%) offset by strong growth in the second and third largest segments, salad kits (+31%) and organic salads (+12%), according to the latest Nielsen data*.
