VIDEO: How to Make a DIY Salad Bar

With all the conflicting health advice out there, the one thing everyone agrees on is that we all need to eat more veggies. When I talk with clients, their main resistance is to all the prep time for slicing, shredding, dicing, and more.

So I give them my secret to our family's daily salads and today, I'm going to share our time-saving tips with you: it's my DIY Salad Bar.

Having all your veggies prepped and at the ready will make getting your greens super simple, fun, easy, and will save you so much time.

Our mainstays are

  • lettuce
  • kale
  • carrots
  • beets
  • purple cabbage
  • garbanzo beans or kidney beans

We rotate other goodies like walnuts, sunflower seeds and sprouts, green cabbage, shredded daikon or turnips, radishes, tomatoes, celery, and more. The veggies, nut, seed, and beans possibilities are endless!

The only tools you'll need are a quality knife and a food processor. A box grater will work fine, it'll just take more time. I love to store everything in glass jars so I can see all the veggies in their glory so they get used more quickly and stay fresh longer.

Drizzle with a little olive oil, balsamic or apple cider vinegar, add a sprinkle of salt and some fresh pepper and you're good to go. If you want something ready-made, whip up your favorite homemade salad dressing in a VitamixBlendtec, or standard blender and store in a jar or reuse a store-bought salad dressing bottle for the quickest salad assembly ever.

Say hello to thriving with easy daily salads!

Enjoy with love,
