Get Creative with Salad Recipes

I always try and start out with a green like kale, swiss chard, or collard in my salad. If you start a salad with a base of iceberg you have made a serious plant-powered half step.

Go the extra mile and be creative with the ingredients for any salad that’s a meal and you won’t be disappointed.
