I don’t know about you, but I end up throwing away the salad half the time after dinner. People tend to eat their main meal and skip adding any salad to their dish. But it’s so healthy that it does need to be consumed alongside your main meal. After all, it’s giving you vital nutrients you need to stay healthy. Often, one of the top reasons why people leave the salad is due to it being boring. After all, it doesn’t have much flavor, and people prefer to eat their scrumptious dish instead. Therefore, to ensure the salad doesn’t get left on the table in future, here are some easy ways to give it some new life.
Chop up bread in the salad
Everyone loves to have some bread with their dinner. After all, it can make your dinner even tastier if you have a nice sauce. But rather than putting it on the dish, you might want to consider chopping up the bread in the salad. Cut it into fine bits which you can dot around the salad. Therefore, it will look a lot more delicious, and your family are more likely to add the salad to their dish. If you want to make it even tastier, you could even consider toasting the bread before adding it to the salad. It will give it a new flavor, and make it even more, crunchier when you are consuming the salad!
Add in some fruit and vegetables
While you might already have foods like tomato and peppers in your salad, it can still make it taste rather boring. Therefore, if you want to give it a new lease of life, you could consider adding in some fruit and vegetables. After all, adding carrots, sweet potato, and even mango will make it a lot tastier. And as long as you have a good set of kitchen knives, which is an interesting topic, you can ensure they are small enough pieces to make it the perfect salad. It can also make the salad even healthier if you do go for fruit and vegetables. Therefore, try different ones and see which ones go down well with your family.
Serve it as the main dish
Rather than having a salad as a side dish, you could consider serving a salad as a main meal. After all, you can add foods like meat or fish to ensure it becomes a tasty dinner. And it’s the perfect way to ensure your family has the healthy salad to get all the nutrients they need. In fact, a salad as a main dish would be perfect when summer arrives, and you want to eat lighter. Or you are opting to eat healthier meals as you are expecting a baby. Therefore, try it for dinner for your family to see if they will tuck in. Here are some delicious salad dishes that might take your fancy.
