What Are Your Favorite Salad Ingredients?

Did you know that this month is National Salad Month? I love, love, love salad and honestly could eat a salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Okay, maybe not for breakfast, but there would definitely be some raw vegetables somewhere on my plate. 

As a Hidden Valley Ranch parent panelist I talk a lot about salads and vegetables. I am extremely partial to Hidden Valley Ranch's Original Ranch Lite. I love salads as well as dressing and sometimes I can be a little heavy-handed with dressing, so I make sure to eat the lite version as often as I can. 

One of the things I love most about salads is you can put almost anything on them and know that you are not taking in excess calories. Unless you dowse your salad with a lot of cheese, dressing, and croutons a simple salad can be your best friend especially if you are on a weight-loss journey.

Do you want to know my favorite salad ingredients are?

  • arugula
  • romaine lettuce
  • feta cheese
  • cherry tomatoes
  • olives - green and black
  • raw mushrooms
  • sunflower seeds

I eat this salad on a regular basis with either Hidden Valley Ranch dressing or their Homestyle Italian dressing which is also extremely delicious. It is just 100 calories for 2 tablespoons of dressing which I have learned is plenty to add the right touch of flavor. 

Now that this is National Salad Month are you going to eat and fix your family more salads? What are your favorite salad ingredients?
