Key things to remember
When you’re assembling your salad, think textures (creamy, crunchy, chewy), proteins (hummus, chicken, turkey, eggs, shrimp, nuts, beans), homemade dressings, mixed greens, varied cheeses, and a whole bunch of vegetables. “I probably put six to eight different things in it and mix a variety of textures, colors, and flavors,” Norton says. “I make the goal to make the salad amazing.”
And if salad still doesn't sound appetizing? Get over it!
“Eat the damn vegetables,” emphasizes Newenhouse. “You’re an adult and you do the things you need to do to survive... Those veggies have a ton of vital nutrients you can’t get anywhere else, so suck it up.”
