Eating more salad is tasty on the palate and a valid source of vitamins and fiber

Salads are a great way to start any lunch or dinner. I find that due to cold and allergy season, I am less drawn to cold foods and more drawn to comfort foods. Then what do I do? I consider different ways to make salads more of a comfort food to appease my and my family’s tastes that remain creative, comforting, and healthy. I also find ways to add fruit to my salad whenever possible to increase my daily intake of fruits, grains, and fiber.
