Salad Secrets

Use only well-drained fruits and vegetables and crisp dry greens – fresh, chilled, and colorful.

Plan salads to complement and harmonize with the rest of the meal – a light salad with a hearty meal, a tart salad with fish, a crisp salad with a soft-textured casserole.

Avoid repeating in a salad flavors which are included elsewhere in the meal.

Use just enough dressing to coat each ingredient lightly – too much makes salads limp or soggy.

Keep more than one kind of dressing on hand to lend variety to your salads.
