Elevate a standard salad bowl by adding exciting layers of textures, flavors and colors. First, try grating a hard-boiled egg over the top of mixed greens. It provides a delicious creaminess and some protein, too. Then, toss in toasted walnuts, omega-3-rich gems that act as a healthy replacement for croutons and deliver a satisfying crunch in addition to its many health benefits. Don’t forget the cheese! Parm lends a salty, indulgent taste to any meal, and this salad is no different. Finally, finish it off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic. This salad really shines.
