Add Nuts To Salads


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I compose a salad as a complete meal, I usually use mixed greens, cuke, carrot sticks, tomato and some protein, such as a few ounces of shredded chicken or poached salmon. For contrast of taste and texture, I also throw in a spoon or two of chopped peanuts or chopped, spicy pecans. When I crunch on a bit of the nut in every second or third bite, bliss. It makes the salad special, substantial and satisfying.
