Wash your greens and vegetables speedily in cold water and dry using paper towel. Chill if not used right away. Tear the greens and chop other crisp vegetables. Toss at once in enough unrefined oil to cut edges. Only then you should add your chopped wet vegetables, like tomatoes, and your choice of dressing. This process will avoid vitamin loss and will keep the salad crisp.
Use all types of colorful crisp vegetables to lend nutrients and beauty to your salads. Rely heavily on sprouts, as growing your own sprouts ensures you cheap, fresh, unsprayed greens all the year round. Theyadd excellent variety in taste and texture and abundant vitamins. Raw vegetables are a necessary part of a good diet.
