This salad is a quick and easy side to any meal. You can choose any greens that suit your palate however, if you are looking for a lower-potassium salad, we recommend this salad just as written. Arugula and kale are lower potassium options and can add a lot of great taste! Just add your favorite salad dressing (we like our lemon garlic vinaigrette dressing with this salad best)
