There are a few requirements for a “diet salad”: it has to be low in calories, high in fiber and vitamins and it has to taste good. This green salad (rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, and Vitamins B, C and K) tastes fresh and crispy. It takes a while to chew it, so you get satiated in the process.
Additionally, it doesn’t wilt, so you can make a large container of it and store it in the fridge, adding dressing whenever you are ready to eat. If you are not on a diet, consider a slice of my divine homemade sourdough bread with this salad.
To make all veggies perfectly sliced, I use this simple slicer. Ever since my then six year old son put it together for me, I use it daily to chop my salads.
