Create your own salad
A salad is one of the easiest meals to prepare and most times, foolproof. Salads are suitable for every season and by adding some cheese, nuts or protein, you can convert this side dish to a hearty main meal. There are so many health benefits to eating a fresh salad and it’s a great way to ensure you get your daily serving of fruit and veg.
To create a delicious salad you only need a few ingredients which may already be available in your home. So, don’t let winter be an excuse for not eating healthy. Construct your own salad using the table below and build a unique salad to accompany your meal or to have as a meal on its own.
When planning your salad, view our Seasonal Fruit & Veggie table to determine which fruits and vegetables are in season now and prepare a fresh, nutritious meal. You can also make your own salad dressing, it's much healthier than store bought versions – see recipe.
