:: BASE (mixed together) ::
1-2 heads of romaine lettuce
1 bunch of spinach
1 bunch of arugula (if available and fresh. adds a kinda spicy flavor to the base)
1/2 bunch of chopped green onions
1/2 bunch of cilantro
:: TOP (chopped and garnish style on top) ::
carrot peels (i use a potato peeler to get nice thin strip style peels)
bell pepper (usually orange or yellow for color diversity.. gotta have presentation too =P)
You can do all sorts of things to change it up depending on the style and what’s available. Add different types of produce, glaze some walnuts instead of almonds, mandarin orange slices, sliced chicken, croutons, etc, etc. My goal is to make a salad as healthy as possible yet full of flavor so it doesn’t require a salad dressing (or very little) to eat it.
