These Are Salad Mistakes You Should Avoid
Don’t Cut With Iron Knife
When you are making the slices of fruits or vegetables with a knife don’t use an iron knife for cutting the vegetables. It will be harmful as iron forms complex compound reacting with the minerals present in fruits or vegetables. So, always use a knife made with stainless steel. Always clean well the vegetables or fruits with water after they have been sliced. Then place them over paper napkin or cotton towel to soak excess water on it.
Don’t Cut Long Time Before
Don’t cut the fruits or the vegetables long time before you prepare the salad like 5-6 hours or more as it will result in lesser food values of the ingredients. You may cut them only before 30-45 minutes before you can prepare the salad and keep them in refrigerator after cleaning it thoroughly with water.
Mix Honey In A Customized Way
When you are mixing honey in your salad don’t mix it previously as it will result in loss of colors of the fruits. And it also makes fruits so soft that may spoil the taste of the salad. Mix honey just before you serve the salad or you may garnish salad with honey and mix it when you eat.
Don’t Add Salt Previously
Don’t add salt previously to the salad as it will take out the water from the vegetables. When the water content of the vegetables gets out of it not only the vegetables just looks bad it lost its food value also.
