11 Best Salad Recipes | Easy Salad Recipes | Healthy Recipes

Salad Recipes- Making a salad can be tricky because more than often it turns out to be bland and well, just leafy. Which is why the right kind of salad recipes can take you a long way. Salad recipes that aren't just for healthy eaters, but also for those who love a burst of flavour. These are fireworks on a plate, not to be missed!



Quick Tip: Three things to keep in mind to get the right crunchiness - 1) Wash your greens with cold water. Using hot or warm water may make then lose the crunchiness. 2) Never overdress, over dressing causes the salad to become soggy. The salad should be dressed just before serving. 3) Serve on a chilled plate to maintain the crunch till the very end.
