7 steps to the perfect salad


Spring or summer, winter or fall, a good salad is always a great experience. And even though it seems like the easiest thing in the world to make, there are a few crucial steps that can take a salad from good to phenomenal.  So here are the 7 things you must know if you want to make the perfect salad.
