Experiment with your own green salad recipes. 

Just about all raw fruits and veggies are good for a green salad. You can even add meats if you like. The sky's the limit. 

Here are just a few examples of ingredients you can add to jazz up a basic green salad:

Lettuce, Spinach, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Onions, Peppers, Radishes, Mushrooms, Spinach, Carrots, Celery, Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Olives, Red cabbage, Alfalfa sprouts, Avocado, Corn, cheese, fruits, nuts, hard-boiled egg and croutons. 


By the way, croutons are super easy to make and much tastier than the store bought kind. Here's a crunchy crouton recipe for your next salad:





CROUTONS

INGREDIENTS:

4 slices of bread

1/4 cup butter

3 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

dash of salt



DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Cut bread slices into 1-inch squares.

Heat butter just enough to melt it.

Stir in Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Remove pan from heat.

Toss bread in the butter mixture until pieces are well coated.

Place bread in a shallow glass baking dish, spread out enough so all the pieces can brown.

Bake for 10 minutes (turning the pieces over with a spatula after 5 minutes), or until croutons are brown and crisp on the outside.
