Whether you want to admit it or not, the reality is that most salads suck.
When you buy one at a restaurant or grocery store, they’re mainly loaded with iceberg lettuce and a few croutons. Honestly, most of us are lucky if we find a cucumber wedge or sliver of carrot in there. But it turns out salads can actually be awesome.

Fortunately, we now have the secret to making a salad that will rock your veggie-hating world. We should warn you though, this is likely going to flip your idea of what a salad should look like on its head.
The first step to making a good salad is–brace yourselves–not using lettuce. That’s right, no lettuce. And we’re hardly scratching the surface, either. To see what goes into making a salad that not only tastes great, but will actually fill you up, check out the video above.
