CHICKEN SALAD WITH LEMON PEPPER DRESSING

I love fresh vibrant salads that are crispy with a tiuch of tangy and sweet. There are so many variations of salads and different ways to serve them. Appetizer salads are served as a first course of the meal, side salads accompany a main course while a main course salad contain portions of protein like eggs, cheese, legumes, fish and even meat. Dessert salads on the other hand contain fruits, topped with whipping cream or/and sweeteners. You can add so many ingredients to your salad, from green beans, cucumber, beet root, peppers, parsley, tomatoes, olives, onions, avocado, carrots and mushrooms. For a tasty flavor and texture, you can add nuts, berries, seeds, edible flowers, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, shrimp and even bacon. Now that I have given you plenty of options when it comes to making salads, why not get your creative juices going with your favourite add ins and toppings.
