Cool Who doesn't like salad?

Okay, I'm always thinking about food. It's a sickness! but here's another thing. It's interesting to see what kinds of nutrients are in various things. So, I'm constantly checking things out. I love salads of many types and they're a great way to make a whole meal in one dish. You can add fish, chicken, eggs, all kinds of protein sources. You can put in healthy, tasty seeds and nuts. The options with salads are endless. And depending on how you make a salad, they're a very healthy, tasty way to help lose weight, as long as a lot of fattening stuff doesn't go in there.

Here are some nutrition facts about various lettuces: http://mailxpress.hubpages.com/hub/D...afs-For-Salads

I posted a jicima and carrot salad a while back that my daughter made. It was soooooooooooooooooooooo delicious and refreshing. It had a lot of other ingredients in it too, but not lettuce.

I eat a salad almost every day and it usually has an abundance of veggies, along with a variety of lettuces and/or spinach and/or kale added. I'm always trying to think up how I might do it differently to make life more interesting.

What are some of the things you like to do to salads? What are your favorite types? What goes well with what? Summer, winter, warm salads, bbq's? What are some favorites when you have guests?

My salads are usually the same and nothing "exciting", lol.

Usually fresh green leaf lettuce, cherry/grape tomatoes and cheese (sometimes). lol My favorite dressing is yogurt dressing - yummmm! If I have Ranch yogurt dressing, I usually mix it with Buffalo Wing sauce. Honey Mustard is another favorite one

If it has lettuce in it, yes.
I also don't like "pasta salad" or "chicken salad" or even "potato salad" because I generally don't enjoy cold foods, and there's also a texture issue involved with a lot of 'em. My mom makes chicken salad and just the smell of it makes me nauseous.

So... yup... I do believe I hate every kind of salad!

our salads are simple, no lettuce, only baby spinach then add some chicken, sliced peppers of all sorts, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and if we have other fresh veggies some of those go in there too. Top with cheese of course and some good olive oil based vinagrette and chow down

I'm with Beanie. I hate salad.
If I do have one, it's lettuce and carrots only. Sometimes if I have the calories for it I add some chicken and real bacon bits. Oh and must have croutons. But those are few and far in between, nor do I need the extra ruffage.

Mine are rarely the same way twice, lol.

One rule: NO ICEBERG LETTUCE.
