Try small broccoli florets, shredded zucchini or carrots, canned quartered artichoke hearts (packed in water and drained), thin bell pepper strips, snow peas, sugar snap peas, thinly sliced red onion or celery, sliced peaches, sliced nectarines, whole berries, sliced apples, sliced pears, or even sliced dried apricots. Choose several, maybe 1/3 cup each of three. Remember: Variety is the spice of salads as well as life! Sprinkle any of these on top of the protein and around the greens.
