Advantage of the warmer weather is eating salads more than any other meal. What I’ve learned over the years, though, is how to make them fun. And when a salad is fun to eat, it makes it even more delicious and healthy at the same time.
The first trick to making a salad more fun is to first gather as many vegetables as you can find and then chop them as small as possible. That way, you get a bit of everything with each bite. I try to cut everything small enough to use a spoon, but sometimes my patience does not allow that much precision. Secondly, I add as many “fun stuff” as possible. This provides the salad with different tastes and textures. Lastly, the salad is tossed very thoroughly before adding a delicious and healthful dressing and mixing again. The ending result is my dinner of choice just about every night. The ending result is a giant salad, but it’s filling without being heavy. And that is the perfect feeling to have when you go outside to trim overgrown bushes immediately following dinner.
