'Something new in salad'. Salad making gives full scope to your powers of invention. For almost all vegetables are at home in the salad bowl, and you can try them in almost endless combinations. A crisp salad, as appetising to look at as it is to taste, is a very important item in the day's meals. Raw green vegetables are one of the riches sources of vitamin c. You'll remember that this is the vitamin that helps so much to give clear skin, bright eyes and that feeling of vigour which makes life enjoyable.
