If I don’t experiment with ingredients and dressing, I get bored of salads. And, I don’t want to feel bored when I eat, and I want to eat more raw veggies each day. My husband and I have been eating a big salad or veggie wrap or another raw dish every day lately. My body thanks me, but in order to keep it up, I’ve got to get creative. If you’re tired of your regular salad, this is a must try! My husband and I had it yesterday and today, because it’s that delicious.
I chop everything except the raisins for this salad, because it’s best when you get a little bit of everything in each bite. Trust me! It’s worth the extra time.
