Our Favorite Salads

Salads have come a long way. Salads can be creative, healthy, delicious, easy to prepare, and fresh and rich with nutrients. Salads are much more fun and colorful. Add in more flavor by adding fruits, nuts, root vegetables, and popular staples such as steak, tuna, and chicken. Ensure that you are getting the nutrients out of any salad by adding red, orange, and yellow vegetables and fruits. Not only will the salad mixture look pretty, but it’ll also have more vitamins and minerals. At Rina’s Pizzeria, we have come up with our favorite salad recipes.
