Other raw veggies, such as tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, peppers and beets, can add flavour and colour the green salad. In France a piece of dry bread rubbed with garlic, a chapon, is sometimes tossed with the salad to season it. Caesar salad, invented in Tijuana, Mexico, in the 1920s, is a green salad of romaine with a highly seasoned dressing of pounded anchovies, olive oil, lemon juice, egg, and Parmesan cheese, garnished with croutons.
Green salads are super-versatile and packed with in-season greens and vegetables. They’re perfect for entertaining, or simply add some chicken breast or your favourite protein and you’ve got yourself a healthy lunch or dinner.
Take your time and combine some truly delicious flavours, and add a splash of dressing and you will end up with a taste sensation that is bursting with freshness and taste. Your well-being will be thankful.
