Live to 100 Salad
There is nothing quite like this live to 100 salad recipe. This is one of the best healthy salad recipes you will find. With ingredients like avocado, cauliflower, celery, cherry tomatoes and cucumber there is so much to love about this simple salad idea. When it comes to making salads you want to always use fresh produce, and it's always good to mix in some texture with some added seeds or nuts. Nuts and seeds will also add some protein. According to the Environment Working Group EWG, avocado and cauliflower are part of the clean 15, meaning these fruits and vegetables aren't sprayed heavily with pesticides. Whereas celery, cherry tomatoes and cucumbers are part of the dirty 12, which you should try and buy organic whenever possible as they are sprayed with a lot of pesticides. If you are unable to buy organic be sure to wash your vegetables and fruits very well. A good idea is to soak them in a sink of cold water with 1/2 cup white vinegar and let them sit for 10-15 minutes before removing them to air dry.In one serving of this simple salad recipe, there is 47 percent of the dietary fiber daily recommended allowance, along with 193 percent of the Vitamin A, 172% Vitamin C, 33% of the recommended calcium and 24 percent of the daily recommended of iron. **

Who said salad is boring?
One of our favorite meals in Grandmother’s Kitchen is salad.
To make delicious salads we use a variety of fresh vegetables, nuts, cheese, eggs, fruit and always homemade salad dressing.
There is not a right or wrong way to make a salad.
There are 3 key things to make a delicious salad.
First, use fresh produce.
Second, mix textures by adding crunchy nuts and seeds.
Finally, always make a tasty homemade dressing.
You may find, like us, that you begin to crave that daily salad because it tastes so darn good!
A great way to save time and eat healthy is to pre-wash and prepare your vegetables as soon as you get them home from the grocery store.
Line a large airtight container with a clean tea towel.
Wash produce in clean sink full of water with a Tablespoon of white vinegar.
Let the produce soak for a minute or two and then remove from water, shake off and let it air dry or dry fully with a clean towel.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Now you will have salad at your fingertips.
