I make salad pretty much every single day in my house, and I’m always trying to find new ways to top my greens.  I think you’ll find that this salad recipe is a good one!

Here are a few salad tips:

  • Store your lettuces in sealable plastic bags wrapped in a damp paper towel.
  • Expand your vision of the crouton.  Bagel chips and crisp farro can play the role of good crispness in salads.
  • Add crisp apple or pear and some good cheese and make that salad a full meal.
  • Crisping tofu in the oven is an easy way to get protein into any salad.
  • Make a salad based on what you have in the refrigerator and not what you think you need.
