Let’s Build a Salad!

The idea of “building” a vegetable salad is so nice!

You start with a base, then adding and layering different textures like crunchy or soft, different tastes like salty or sweet, using many different colors and finishing off with something little extra as decoration, plus a few tablespoons of a delicious dressing.

A well “built” vegetable salad is beautiful, colorful, healthy and delicious.
