Salads are filled with so many different flavours and textures. They are nutritious and it so easy to create your own salads because there are so many different ingredients to choose from!
Most people associate summer with salads because they are so easy to throw together and can be very cooling and refreshing. People also have less of an appetite when the weather is warm, so they tend to want lighter meals. Salads make great sides during BBQ season and most outdoor events. Some popular produce used in summer salads includes corn, arugula, avocados, beets, watermelon, strawberries, mangoes and more.
Contrary to popular belief salads can be eaten in the winter too. Cooked vegetables can be Included to avoid cold food. You can also make warm salads using room temperature ingredients. Popular winter salad ingredients include pumpkins, asparagus, pomegranates, figs and more.
What Ingredients to Include in Salads?
Greens are typically used as a base in salads; however, you can use ingredients such as pasta, quinoa, noodles, beans and bulgur wheat as a base instead. If you want your salad to be more filling or you want to serve it as a main then add proteins such as, chicken, beef slices, salmon, shrimp, beans or tofu! For extra crunch and nutrients add nuts and seeds. Finally, if you want the salad to have more of a sour taste then add cheeses such as feta, mozzarella or blue cheese.
Some salads are served as mains while others are eaten as sides. Some popular sides include coleslaw, potato salad and tabbouleh.
Let’s not forget our beloved fruit salads. They are super easy to prepare and are the true definition of refreshing and cooling! Popular fruits to include in fruit salads are apples, strawberries, oranges, pomegranates, pineapples, berries and more
