Every time I go to the mall, I always stop at the giant salad bar and wonder why salads there are better than what I make at home. Finally it hit me- I don’t have to chop anything and there are so many choices! I decided that starting this week, I would make my own salad bar at home and it was a huge, delicious, healthy success! Above is a list of every healthy salad topping I could think of, a few of my recent salads, and the salad bar I made for myself.
Here’s my suggestion for building your own salad bar:
Fruit – Whatever kind you like (except bananas); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor. Use all kinds of citrus and berries. Pineapple and watermelon work well for flavoring water.
Herbs – These are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors; almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference.
Jars or pitchers – Use 2 quart mason jars primarily, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. Fruit infusion pitcher is another option if you think you’ll be making infused waters regulary; a very easy, tidy way to strain fruit from water.
Muddler or wooden spoon for mashing fruit and herbs.
