Chef A’s Tip: Be creative! Feel free to forge new fusions. Do you prefer balsamic over red wine vinegar? Go for it! Did you just pick up gorgeous strawberries from the market? Use them instead of oranges for this salad. Remember Pritikin Chef Anthony’s mantra: "If you like foods individually, chances are you will love them when they’re combined." It’s all about discovering new taste treats!
