  • Throw away the bad bits of salad
  • Rinse your strainer and scissors under water
  • Wash your spoon and bowl

Salad Making, Flavoring & Savoring Tips

  • Start with the base only (leaves, salsa & garlic flakes) and add one ingredient at a time
  • As you experiment, you’ll find your favorite combinations.
  • As the Italians know, simpler often tastes better, so¬†avoid adding too much too soon.
  • Experiment with spices – there are many amazing combinations to be found.
  • Find a mild salsa you love as the default for convenience, but learn to sautee veggies and have them on a special occasion.
  • Any salad can become a full meal by adding steak, hamburger, tuna, pork, salmon, eggs, bacon, etc.
  • Eat a salad with every meal. If you’re looking to lose weight, poop better or improve your health, have a salad with every meal. Start with one a day and work up from there as the months of the year wane on.

Salsa – The Perfect Salad Dressing

Salsa is absolutely amazing on salad for several reasons:

  1. It tastes amazing!
  2. It’s lower calorie than traditional dressings.
  3. It’s super-healthy because it’s made of… more vegetables!
  4. Everyone I’ve told about salsa as a dressing replacement – LOVES IT!
  5. It supports weight-loss and makes you more likely to eat salad.
