Summer is a great time for salads, and the concept of salads have come a long way.
You can be much more creative than a simple lettuce concoction.
Beets, black olives, sprouted chickpeas, nuts, cheese, and flax seeds can all raise the "salad bar" for your next meal.
Alternately, you can make a really hearty salad with just a few ingredients that aren't even lettuce-based.
