Salads and Dressings

Where does one start with salads? If you aren’t a salad eater you need to be, it’s that simple. I was never into salads, mainly because they always seemed to be the same tossed salad that didn’t interest me and I wasn’t an adventurous eater in my young adult life and therefore I didn’t realize salad was more than iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, radishes and tomatoes with bottled dressing poured over it. And this is why you need to get into salads if you are not into salads….because they are truly delicious when made with a tasty homemade dressing and the right combination of veggies. Salads have transformed from “something on the side of my plate” that I have to eat into a main dish that I cannot wait to dig into. If you are already a salad aficionado you’re way ahead of me and you’ve got this one!
