Learn to make the kind of vegetable salad that you will love

While eating raw vegetables is not that appealing, there are undeniable benefits to eating vegetable salads that you shouldn't allow yourself to miss.

Salad

Many people tend to stay away from vegetable salads, whether at a wedding, at home, even at a restaurant. Such people can only risk eating the healthy platter only at a very high-end restaurant where standards are beyond question.

This phobia for eating vegetables without cooking them stems from previous bad cases of food poisoning or rumours of the same. Others frown at eating rwa vegetables, because you know, they are not goats.

But there is a way around it. Vegetable salads are essential yet delicious foods high in supplements, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fibre, and folate. These supplements are significant in boosting eyesight and increasing immunity and may also prevent cancer and help you battle existing chronic illnesses.

The above is a good reason to choose vegetable salads every time. Choosing to stay away from them for any reason is ill-advised. It is not an option. Learn how to now only eat salad but a better way to make your own that you will enjoy.

We usually consider a standard green serving of mixed greens loaded with lettuce when we think of a salad. Nonetheless, it is critical to note that you can change your serving of mixed greens base to make an entirely different formula! This can incorporate barbecued vegetables, entire wheat pasta, berry tomatoes, and things you love.

You can use whatever you like, but tomatoes and cucumbers make salad taste great.

Wash

Wash all the vegetables you have chosen thoroughly by holding them under running water at the kitchen tap. Make sure to run all the surfaces with your hand as the water washes away the dirt.

Mix

Place all the vegetables; lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, green onion, jicama, cucumber, and bell pepper in a large salad bowl.

Make the dressing

Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, pomegranate juice, water, garlic, dill, basil, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle dressing over the salad just before serving.

  1. You can provide your servings of mixed greens with an additional portion of cancer prevention agents by making your oil-based salad dressings and including power spices like basil, parsley, thyme, cilantro, dill, rosemary, oregano, garlic and lemon. Pick your number one spice combos, blend in with a solid oil in addition to lemon juice or vinegar, and season to taste.
  2. For Meat Lovers: Salad meats are a superb combination of health and meat love mania. Adding sources of proteins like chicken, tender beef, and much more.
  3. For Vegans: Salad is the king of fibre and nutrition. It not only energizes you but also treats you with yummy fruits, syrups, and veggies of your choice.

Add two or three tablespoons of blended crude or broiled seeds like pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, and ground flax or chia to help your day-to-day admission of good fats.
