Salad That Isn’t Boring – 5 Minute Garden Salad Recipe

Salad that is not bland or boring.

I have a problem with most salads.  It’s either tasteless, slimy, and bitter or drenched with so much fattening dressing that you might as well eat those two slices of pizza you really wanted anyways.  Here’s my simple solution to the problem.  Ditch the lettuce!  Yes!  Lettuce is satan’s vegetable.  I only include crunchy, juicy, flavorful veggies in my salads.  Mix it all up with some lemon juice, lots of black pepper, some cumin or oregano, and some olive oil and you’ve got yourself a party in your salad bowl.

My veggie and fruit shortlist includes:

  • Tomatoes – get the really salty juicy campari tomatoes, not those gross watery giant beefsteak tomatoes.
  • Bell Peppers – get the yellow and red ones.  Raw green bell peppers are an abomination.
  • Cucumbers
  • Mushrooms – a couple slices of mushrooms gives some umami/savoryness to the salad.
  • Carrots
  • Beets
  • Peas
  • Onions
  • Eggplant (Grilled)
  • Zucchini (Grilled)
  • Broccoli (Cooked)
  • Califlower (Cooked)
  • Green Beans (Cooked)
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Rosemary
  • Mangoes
  • Peaches
  • Berries of all sorts
  • Lemons and limes
