Eating a salad on a daily basis is one of the best ways to improve our health and diet but the problem is that many people find this dish boring and bland. Even if you don’t like salads, here are a few tasty ingredients that will take your salad game to a new level and help you make this dish less boring.


This wonderful legume is a staple in vegetarian and vegan diets because they are an excellent source of dietary fiber and protein. Raw or roasted chickpeas make for a rich and nutritious addition to literally any salad.


Another vegan staple that you should try adding to your salads is tofu. This nutritious soy product will absorb the flavors of other ingredients and can turn your salad into a hearty and healthy meal.


Walnuts, pistachios, pecans, almonds, and other nuts are an excellent addition to any meal because they are super nutritious and will give your salads a wonderful crunchy texture.

Dried Fruits

People who love sweet and savory food combinations should definitely try adding dried fruits like raisins, apricots, or cranberries to salads. Dried fruits will make your salads more interesting and nutritious, but make sure to use them in moderation since they’re high in sugar.
