The Cupcakes and Cashmere A Spin on Salad guide has been posted by blogger Emily Schuman. The chart takes in a variety of factors for those who have come to love green mixes, all the while considering matters like crunch and texture.
Listed under the texture section are edamame beans, avocado, hard boiled eggs and oranges. For many, these toppers are the final finish, adding funky elements to dishes. Schuman advises readers to get a much desired crunch through roasted hazelnuts, radishes, pomegranate seeds and strips of jicama. The 'extra kick' as she so calls it comes from bits of mint, lemon zest, dill and scallions, elements which have made her basic salads more enjoyable.
