Foods That Make Your Salad Pop With Flavor

By Genevieve Cunningham

When it comes to changing your eating habits and moving toward a healthier menu, many people stick to what they know. And in the beginning, what they know best is that salads are healthy. This leaves many choosing salads over and over again until they get the hang of healthy eating. The problem? If you don’t keep your salads interesting, you’re more likely to give up! So what can you do? If you’re interested in creating a salad that explodes with flavor, take a look at these delicious additions to try today.

Olives

Olives, whether black or green, make a wonderful addition to any salad. They’re incredibly low calorie, and their oils can provide a boost of health to the skin, brain, and body in general. If you choose green olives, you’ll want to watch the sodium content, as these are a slightly salty choice. But overall, olives make a great low calorie topping with powerful flavor.

Tomatoes

What salad is complete without tomatoes? Tomatoes contain a blast of Vitamin C for the consumer. They’re also very low calorie and provide the body with doses of potassium and various other vitamins and nutrients. The good thing about tomatoes is that there are multiple options to choose from. Pick a big round tomato and slice it up. If that’s not your thing, choose some tiny grape or cherry tomatoes to add on top. Tomatoes make a great topping with very few calories, plenty of nutritional value, and a nice juicy flavor, too.

Eggs

Eggs provide the body with a blast of protein and healthy fats. When they’re boiled, chopped, and added to salad, they’re an excellent way to get healthy nutrients with very little effort. And on a salad, they make a nice change in flavor and texture to keep the salad interesting. If you haven’t tried eggs on your salad before, give them a try. Most people find this addition palatable and easy.

Purple Cabbage

Lettuce tends to be the bulk of most salads, but let’s not pretend that lettuce doesn’t get really boring. To add both flavor and texture, slice up some purple cabbage to add to the mix. This gives your salad an extra crunch and helps you feel even more full by the meal’s end. And for those who are attracted to aesthetically pleasing meals, the deep purple color helps this dish look especially appetizing.

Salads really are a great choice when you’re trying to reduce calories or change your diet to include healthier foods. It’s a meal that you don’t have to put a lot of thought into, which makes the process even easier. If you want your salad to be even better, try adding these extra toppings. You might find that a few extra toppings pushes the salad over the edge and makes eating salads a cinch.
