If you have ever had the unfortunate luck of dining at a restaurant that serves a less than appetizing green salad to accompany your meal, you know how aggravating it can be. Whether it is the menu you are getting or the preparation involved, you are sure to find that green salads can be one of the worst foods to consume when you are eating out. That is why it is always a good idea to come home and make your own, in order to avoid the horror of dining out again and wasting money on food that does not agree with you.
For starters, you need to think long and hard about what you want to have in your green salad. Some people like to put together a simple list of favorite green salad recipes that make for an ideal side salad for almost anything. While some of these are certainly going to be more flavorful than others, they will all work no matter if you are paired spinach or tomato. One of the most common choices for this particular kind of dish tends to be spinach dressed with olive oil and served on top of a bed of mixed greens. You might also want to try a version that calls for spinach with a little tuna wrap thrown in for crunch and texture.
Speaking of taste, remember that the key to creating a tasty green salad is to ensure that you incorporate just the right amount of dressing. A vinegar based dressing like a balsamic vinaigrette works well for this particular dish, as it not only adds a sweet flavor that goes well with the spinach salad, but also allows you to draw out the flavors of the other ingredients instead of simply eating them. It is really the perfect solution for those people who tend to get sick of the overpowering taste of their salad. You can also use lemon juice and a squeeze of lemon juice mixed together to create a delicious dressing that brings out the flavor of the cherry tomatoes.
