Garden salads, by their very name, are made up of vegetables from the garden. Adding other foods such as beans, nuts, or seeds is an excellent way to add not only flavor but also fiber and other nutrients. Get creative with the foods you love and add what appeals to you!
Buy organic whenever possible, and wash all vegetables thoroughly to reduce your intake of harmful pesticides.
A garden salad will usually stay fresh for a day or two in the fridge, depending on the ingredients.
