I’m just kidding, of course. Although in previous years, I did get up early (3:00am) to catch a few of those shopping bargains on Black Friday.

So if you’re going to include more salads into your diet, how do you keep your salads from becoming boring?
To answer that question, here are thirteen ideas you can use to add…
