10 Best Salad Recipes We love salads, come rain or shine! Toss in your favorites and conjure up a perfect mid-meal entrée. And if you are wondering salads are not just for the healthy eaters, they are also for those who love a burst of flavors. 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.
