4 Ways to Make Your Salad a Little More Exciting June 26, 2019

4 Ways to Make Your Salad a Little More Exciting, Brooklyn, New York

Eating plenty of leafy greens is a convenient way to get your daily dose of veggies and vitamins. But ordering a salad every time you go to a restaurant can get boring if you don’t mix it up a little. Here are some fun ways to give your salad an extra kick.

How to Spice Up Dull Salads

1. Enticing Sauces

If you’re tired of the typical salad dressing offerings, spice it up with a little hot sauce. Add it to your favorite restaurant dressing or just splash a dash of buffalo, garlic, or teriyaki sauce over your veggies to create a unique and low-cal flavor. Don’t be afraid to mix your favorite flavors to create a taste that’s all your own.

2. Protein

restaurantTurn a side salad into a satisfying entrée by adding grilled or fried chicken. Grilled chicken will provide a smoky, blackened flavor while fried will add crunch. Hardboiled eggs or avocado add flavor and protein without the meat. 

3. Cheese

A sprinkling of cheese is a tasty way to energize your salad and add dairy and protein. Cheddar works well with bacon and ranch dressing, while blue cheese crumbles are the perfect addition to a salad with blue cheese dressing. Try something spicy like pepper jack cheese with a southwestern-style dressing. 

4. Crunch

Variety in texture is important to any dish. To create texture variety in an already-crunchy salad, add a different kind of crunch with croutons. For a southwestern-style salad, try tortilla chips or strips. Meat-lovers with a craving for salty can get their crunch from smoky bacon crumbles.
