How To Make The Perfect Salad

Salad is one of those things that is viewed by many as a “Diet” food or an appetizer.


In our home we have salad as dinner about 3 times a month and the kids love it. With Kids it’s all about the toppings and the dressing. You have to make it pleasing to the eye in order for kids to want to try it.

If you are looking to watch your fat intake you will want to do a couple of things.

  • Pick a lean meat such as turkey or chicken breast.
  • Leave off the yolks and bacon. (For the Paleo and Keto community this is a sin, but for those of you watching your Fat intake stay away)
  • Pick a Different Dressing.
    • Ranch taste great but it is higher in fat than some of its other choices. Look for a Vinaigrette or something with juice or vinegar.

More than anything have fun with it and eat as many REAL foods as possible.
