5 Holiday Salads To Try Out And Make Over Christmas

5 Holiday Salads To Try Out And Make Over Christmas. Food glorious food.

The Christmas holidays are always a time for eating; more eating and then even more eating!! The best thing about time off from the usual routine, though; isn’t it!? 

Holidays and being home all day usually lead to eating lots of food. I should know as I’m home all the time. I eat lots of food. I am always biting and bobbing, mostly on the wrong kinds of food too. 

Having a salad jar already to eat is a great idea for you to snack on healthier foods.

I just loved having a chopped up salad in the fridge waiting to be eaten, for when I get the munchies or just get bored and need something to do.
