Salad Toppings

January 3, 2019

One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to be healthier. Every year, the gyms are packed January 2nd and calories are being counted. As people gravitate toward more salads, it’s important for restaurants and stores to offer a diverse array of toppings. We’re sharing some of our favorite salad topping ingredients. These make great topping options for salad bars and restaurant ingredients.

Dried Fruit

Dried fruit can add a bit of sweetness, vital nutrients and texture to your salad. Dried fruits like cranberries and blueberries can be used to top a variety of different salads and they pair well with healthy olive oil or balsamic vinaigrette.

Nuts

Nuts can be used to add some crunch and extra health benefits to your salad. They’re always a better choice over croutons.
