Default Offiicial: Salad Thread, Bring on the Greens!

In our quest to eat healthier, we have gotten stuck in a ceaser salad or traditional salad rut.

Looking for ideas that pack well with lunches.

I have a dressing for a Horserasdish Vinigarette that i will post up later, but lets see your favorite salads.

I eat Mediteranean-style chopped (sheppard's) salad from my garden all summer long.

Cucumbers, diced
Tomatoes, diced
Scallions, chopped small
Parsley
squeeze of lemon
salt & pepper
light vinaigrette to taste
crumbled Feta cheese if desired

I've recently developed a minor crush on "wedge salads."

Take ginormous wedge of iceburg.
Cover it with bleu cheese crumbles and bacon.
Cover it with bleu cheese dressing.

Look at me, being healthy.

I don't see the appeal of iceberg lettuce.

Spinach FTW. Throw in some grilled chicken from my George foreman and call it a day.

I'm also a fan of avocado in salads.

And when I'm feeling in the mood for dressing, I like annie's honey mustard. It's low in fat and doesnb taste like it's low fat.

I like salad with some spring greens, mandarin oranges or pears, walnuts, a sweeter vinaigrette dressing, maybe some bleu cheese crumbles if you like that, sugar snap peas, edamame. It's good stuff right there.

I also suggest halving roma or grape tomatoes, adding little mozzarella balls, balsamic vinegar, and basil and adding that to a salad too. SO delicious!

Another thing I suggest is thinking of salads you would get when eating at a restaurant and try to recreate them. It will give you the option to use less of something you didn't like but still gave flavor and more of stuff you did like, except dressing because then you wouldn't be eating healthy haha.

How about a Greek style salad.

Mixed Greens
Thinly sliced red onions
Kalamata olives
Feta
Croutons
Cucumber slices if you like
Also, I put some sun dried tomatoes on mine

I found some feta garlic dressing at Whole Foods that was really good.

It's great. If you want to take it up a notch and add some protein... Grill some salmon and put it on top.
