How to Make a Healthy Garden Salad + Video

Sometimes, you just need or feel like a Healthy Garden Salad!

How to Make Healthy Garden Salad - cookingwithkimberly.comWhen you make a salad interesting by using an assortment of appealing vegetables, your family & guests are more likely to enjoy it more, and even request seconds.

My way of thinking healthy is that we need to eat as much raw food as possible, and an appetizing salad is the way to begin or end a delicious meal.

Also, leftovers make a great snack, but be sure to store it without dressing or salt on the salad.

Healthy Garden Salad:

I served this healthy garden salad with Napa Jack’s Oven-Roasted BBQ Chicken Drumsticks & Oven-Roasted Corn-on-the-Cob. I also made a Napa Valley Blood Orange Buttermilk Salad Dressing on this salad, but feel free to use a dressing of your choice.

Web Chef Review: Ontario Lettuce at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comAll of the vegetables used in this salad are Ontario grown and came from Harvest Barn Country Markets in Niagara-on-the-Lake, which is one of their two locations in Southern Ontario – the other location is St. Catharines.

Aside from the fact that their produce is invariably fresh, optimally ripe, and beautifully displayed, Harvest Barn Country Markets try, as much as possible to bring in their produce from within a 100 mile radius of their locations. Thus, the produce doesn’t have to travel exceedingly long distances to reach us. So, it is much less bruised and damaged in transport, making the quality much better when we get it home. There is far less, if any waste.

How to Make a Healthy Garden Salad - cookingwithkimberly.comIn my opinion, it is best to prepare your dressing, and allow each diner to dress their own salad at the table. That way, you don’t get dressing on all the vegetables in the main salad, and you are able to keep the leftovers refrigerated for the next day, without the salad wilting & getting soggy.
