All the toppings

We all love salads—big salads for dinner, smaller servings as sides. And we love interesting ingredients; different leafy greens, assorted vegetables, slices of fruit. But there is something about having some crunch in your salad that takes the culinary sensation to a whole different level.

Not only do these 5 delicious crunchy salad toppings add great taste and texture to your salad, they provide an extra-super nutritious boost. You won’t miss the croutons at all.
