Here are a couple of mistakes people make when making salads

1. More dressing than the actual salad

Most people enjoy the flavor of a dressing in a salad which is why often a common mistake that people make is to add more dressing than fruits or vegetables to it. Dressing, depending on which type,can also be quite fattening, which is why you need to make your salad more flavorful and tasty so that you can avoid adding dressing to it.

2. Too many ingredients in one salad

Some people can’t decide what to put in their salad and often they add too many ingredients in one single dish. This can turn into a complete failure given that it could mean that the salad won’t come out as tasty as it should and the flavor is too overwhelming. 

3. Cutting vegetables the wrong size

Learning how to cut vegetables in the right size is essential to make your salad more tasty and easier to eat. Sometimes when vegetables are cut very big, they are not even edible and it can turn quite tricky to finish a salad. For instance, if you cut pieces of onion into your salad that are quite large and thick they are going to be unappealing when someone takes that big chunk of food into their mouth.

4. People don’t consider texture

You need to consider the salad’s texture. This is important because it means that if it is too soft or soggy people might not want to continue eating it after a while. Adding some crunch to it, and having some soft ingredients is key in order to have a good and delicious salad.
