The wonderful thing about making a salad is that it's a relaxed, stress-free way of cooking, with endless possibilities for customisation. By simply adding in a handful of toasted nuts, something sweet like sultanas, a few spoonfuls of chewy grains like barley or spelt, then a crumbling of cheese; a boring salad can start to look a lot more like dinner.
