Tips for improving your salad

1) Dress up your salad with a good mix of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and squeeze some lemon for that extra zing.

2) For a fruity salad, chop some apples, add walnuts, golden raisins and yoghurt

3) Sprinkle pine nuts onto your salad for that added crunch.

4) Add some goat’s cheese to your mixed greens, as well as macadamia nuts and sliced avocado for a creamy salad.

5) Throw in some fresh succulent prawns and chopped ripe mangoes for a tropical and seaside salad.

6) Go healthy with a bean salad – combine black beans, pinto beans, green peas and chickpeas and add orange juice, Dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar.

7) Combine greens like arugula and lettuce, add pomegranate seeds, sliced oranges, grated lemon rind and a generous dose of olive oil.

8) Mint does wonders on a hot day and all you have to do is to throw in some chopped mint leaves
