If you are like me you want to replicate these lovely bowls of greens because not only do they look amazing, they TASTE amazing. This helps keep me motivated to eat healthy. Try some of these tips to step your salad game up!
1. Fresh Ingredients
Making sure you only get fresh ingredients that are IN SEASON is imperative to a beautiful tasty salad. This may seem obvious, but some people don’t know where to begin. The best place to go for fresh in season ingredients is your local farmer’s market. This is not only guaranteed fresh, it usually supports local organizations!
2. Salad Spinner

Let’s just face it, the old paper towel pat dry trick just isn’t working out. Invest in a salad spinner, as it will get all of your chosen veggies quickly and thoroughly dry. This not only keeps your salad from being mushy, but also allows for your dressing to stick better.
