Meat for salad need to choose fresh and high quality. Young beef has a creamy white fat, and it is light red, but not burgundy. Fresh meat smells like milk. The dark color of the flesh and yellow fat indicate that the meat is old.
Fresh pork has white fat and uniform pink meat. When pressing with a finger, the meat should spring up, not press through.
Water puddle under the meat means that the sellers watered it, so as not to wither. This product can not be taken. After lying in the hot season a couple of hours in the water, the meat becomes hazardous to health.
Vegetables need to choose ripe, but not overripe. They should please both the stomach and the eye.
