As the emphasis on a healthy lifestyle increases, more people are turning to salads for their meals. If you’re new to salads, however, it can be hard to think of ways to add some real flavor and make sure you’re actually full when you’re done eating. Fortunately, Haleiwa, HI’s Kua’aina Sandwich has a few ideas that will help you liven up your dinner.
3 Ways to Put a Delicious Spin on Salads
1. Add Some Grains
One common mistake among salad eaters is forgetting to add rice and other grains. Mixing a broccoli salad with quinoa, for instance, will excite the taste buds and is an easy way to increase the protein in your meal while you’re at it.
2. Toss On Healthy Fats
Although you don’t want to go overboard with fatty ingredients, there’s nothing wrong with adding some healthy sources of fat to your salad. A few slices of avocado will instantly liven up your meal, but you can also add nuts and seeds for some additional crunch. Sprinkle on a small amount of olive oil for another dash of flavor.
3. Don’t Forget the Fruit
Fruits are an easy way of adding some immediate tastiness to any salad. Strawberries, pineapples, and peaches are all classic items that immediately make a salad more appetizing. Pair them with greens and a creamy but light dressing.
