HOW LONG DOES TOSSED SALAD LAST?

if you have any leftovers, make sure to drain any excess dressing, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days. You can always add a bit more dressing if the salad needs it. But try to make just enough salade to be consumed right away.

VARIATION AND RECIPE SUBSTITUTIONS

  • I love to add fresh fruits to my salad. Such as sliced oranges, strawberries, or blueberries to my salads. It adds an extra sweetness that balances out the vinegar in the dressing.
  • Nuts are a great addition to salads. The crunch and nutty taste they provide enhances the salad.
  • Shredded Parmesan for Italian-style salads and fresh herbs like fresh basil. Sometimes I add goat cheese.
  • Croutons: Add croutons for a delicious crunchy bite.
  • Protein: grilled or cooked chicken breast is always a favorite if you want to make a complete meal out of your salad. Grilled steak, shrimp or even tuna are great choices too.

RECIPE TIPS:

    1. I recommend to take the seeds of the tomatoes before chopping them. they add too much moisture and thus results in making the tossed salad soggy. the same thing goes for the cucumbers.

    2. I love to use a salad spinner to dry the lettuce leaves. Too much water sticking to the leaves waters down the dressing.

    3. Add the dressing just before serving to keep your veggies fresh and crunchy.

    4. Refrigerate tossed salad for a few minutes before serving it.
