Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

A drizzle of premium olive oil is a must on any salad dressing irrespective of what the other salad ingredients are. It lifts the entire taste of the salad. A little oil goes a long way in flavour.
Personally I believe that if a salad doesn't have avocado in it, it's not worth having!! Such a simple ingredient - easy to prepare, nutritious, versatile. LOVE it!
Probably carrot, I love the crunch of carrot in salads
How do you prepare your carrots? Do you grate them or julienne them or just chop into small pieces?

Usually grated carrot

Nuts or seeds - I love a crunchy element in a salad!
I used to add nuts all the time - But I stopped when I had the kids because they are a choking hazard and they always want the exact same things as I have! Now that they are a bit older I've started adding some nuts back in occasionally. I love almonds and also pine nuts for salads - Do you have a favourite?

Hi Lizzi

Toasted sunflower and pepita seeds are fabulous! All kinds of nuts, depends on the salad and which will complement it the best. :)
tomatoe
I use Himalayan Pink Salt. It is quite different to normal salt and a good quality olive oil or Flaxseed oil.
Either balsamic vinegar or cheer tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes are great for adding both colour and flavour and balsamic vinegar is kind of a guilty pleasure as I like it in abundance.
