Ideas for Salad – Green Salad Made Yummy

I love green salads. I love experimenting with different types of lettuce and adding a wide variety of ingredients. Here are some ideas for your green salad.


I try a variety of greens. I usually like a nice spring mix or spinach mix and throw in some ice berg lettuce for crunch. You can also go for green leaf, romaine and others.


There are not right or wrongs here for sure. These are some of my favorites and feel free to adapt to your own. Most of the time, I use raw vegetables, but roasted vegetables add great flavor too.
