5 Ways To Make Healthy Salads Tastier

Do you want to eat healthier but end up eating junk food? Do you try eating salad but they are just so dull and unappealing? We know that feeling. But salads are important as they are rich in minerals and nutrients that aren’t found in many other foods! Remember, salads don’t always have to be bland and tasteless. All you need to do is take some time to make them yourself, using the tips given below! Let us see how we can make salads greener, better and most of all- yummier! Here’s 5 ways you can help yourself eat healthier, tastier salads:

  • Try including a little bit of fat in it! :

    No, we aren’t kidding! And let’s face it, everything tastes better with fat! Think olive oil, a little bit of butter, an avocado, a few almonds or cashews – this will ensure that it tastes better, and you get your daily fat intake as well! If that doesn’t sound too appealing to you, sprinkle a bit of cheese on it – try to eat healthier ones like feta, goat’s cheese or cottage cheese!

  • Add some Fruits :

    It is true – a little bit of fruit does brighten up the flavor, and it looks super pretty on greens too! Try adding a little bit of sliced apple to your spinach salad, or a few sliced strawberries and peaches to your kale salad! Don’t worry too much about what goes with what, just experiment with different fruits in your salad until you find your favorite! Pro tip: You can never go wrong with a watermelon and feta salad!

  • Add a few of your Favorite Veggies :

    Not a fan of the grassy feel of some salads? Add in a few pieces of boiled potato, cauliflower or broccoli to add a little bit of body to your salad which will also help you feel full for a longer time. You can even add roasted chicken pieces if that’s what you prefer. The chicken and creamy avocado salad is a sure hit!

  • Marinate your ingredients :

    To add a punch of flavor, you can marinate mushrooms, broccoli, some bell peppers or even some dried fruit! Use a tangy marinade like yogurt and lemon or a low sodium soy, or make your own! The variations are endless. Add in a few greens for a burst of sparkling freshness, which will also brighten up the look of your salad.

  • Add spices :

    If you are not a fan of the sweet and fruity salads, try adding some spices like cumin, toasted curry leaves, a little bit of mustard seeds, fresh green chilies for a yummy indulgence that doesn’t feel like you’re eating a salad at all!

    A salad doesn’t look so bad now, right? Eat healthier, and you will feel fresher, better and full of energy! So go ahead and stock up on your today’s salad ingredients at your favorite Ratnadeep store!
