Fresh ingredients and the right dressing are an important part of a good salad
You can find the freshest locally grown ingredients for a delicious and healthy salad at your local farmers market. And I recommend that you learn one or two homemade dressing recipes by heart. Once you have a go-to salad dressing, you can easily create a delicious salad with a variety of ingredients with no effort at all. French dressing is my favorite as it packs a lot of flavor, goes with everything and takes 2 minutes to make.
