MmMmMMM Salad!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
OH my goodness, I just had the BEST salad ever. I didn't realize I could ever love salad. I picked it up from the grocery store..it was made fresh.

It had green lettuce, purple lettuce (don't know what its called), cucumbers, tomatoes, bacon bits, chicken, red onion and tiny pieces of shredded cheese I had Asian Sesame dressing with it, and O M G.

I knew I had to eat more protein at lunch, so I figured I would try this salad with chicken..and boy I think I could eat this salad everyday for the rest of my life

Am I a freak for loving salad?

I had a similar salad yesterday, only I made it myself.

I love Asian Sesame dressing. I buy the Kraft Asian Sesame dressing.

I was craving a salad so bad yesterday and I couldn't take my coat off fast enough in order to get into the kitchen to make the salad! LOL

I put lots and lots of red onion in it because for some reason I was craving red onions

I'm a salad freak too. I don't have it as often as I would like because I find it too hard to get to the grocery store on a weekly basis to buy fresh produce and lettuce goes bad so quickly if kept for too long in the fridge.

I love salad too - I use the Paul Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette - (the light version) and it is SO good!

Now I want a salad!

Another salad lover here! My ultimate fantasy salad is red leaf, iceberg, and romaine lettuce, purple cabbage, paperthin carrots, roasted walnuts, shaved parmesan, plain croutons, and that wonderful tangy-sweet mustard vinaigrette from Maggiano's Restaurant.

We do have "Renee's" but I haven't really looked to see what types. I'll look the next time I go to Safeway.

I have the same salad almost every day for lunch-spinach, chicken breast, carrots, feta cheese and low fat Kraft Asian Sesame dressing. So good!!!

I will join the salad lover's club!! I had pizza and salad for supper tonight and I didn't finish the pizza so that I could go back for seconds on the salad! I am a ranch girl! But I will have to try the Asian sesame! I love romaine lettuce with a little cheddar, bacon bits, carrots, and chow main noodles! Now I want more salad!

My husband eats a heaping dinner plate size plate of salad every night. Sometimes I get sooo sick of salad, but man he is a nut! He usually gets a veggie blend thats a mix of Romain lettuce and veggies like sugar snap peas, carrots, radish, and the purple cabbage stuff, then adds sunflower seeds, cheese, croûtons, and sometimes cranberries. We usually go for vinaigrette based dressings.

Wow, a man that loves salad!?! That is really great Leighann..my ex wouldn't touch salad if his life depended on it (or unless it was caesar salad dripping with high fat dressing)

Believe it or not, my nine-year-old nephew loves salad, too! His father (my brother) has never eaten anything green in his life, but my nephew is growing up right in spite of it!

By the way -- years ago where I worked, we had a Thanksgiving dinner where everybody brought something, and our CFO brought the most wonderful autumn salad: romaine, diced apples, diced pears, chopped pecans, dried cherries, and poppyseed dressing. It was spectacular!

I love salad too! The funny part about it is my 5 y/o, my 2 y/o and my 1 y/o could live off of salad too! We eat it all the time, and if I try to give the kids something else they just steal mine!! Its so good for them that you can't say now! Every now and then you get the occasional kitty stealing a tomato too!

I love salads- you can eat them as a side dish or as a whole meal. My favorite is a blend of greens with carrots, red cabbage, tomato, whole green olives, shredded cheddar (or parm), croutons, bacon bits, diced hard boiled egg and grilled chicken (especially cajun/blackened chicken).

I also like chicken and tuna "salad". I put salad in quotation marks because it's not really a salad. I'm pretty plain with it. I don't like onion, celery or relish. It's basically the can of meat, mayo, salt, pepper. With the chicken I sometimes add in some shredded cheese and bacon.

I never used to eat salad in Texas even though I was a vegetarian for 19 years. But when we moved to California and I tasted fresh lettuce, everything changed. Now we eat a salad at least every other day!

Favorites:

Fresh Mozzarella Salad:
sliced zucchini (cooked in salted boiling water for two minutes then cooled under running water), sliced cherry tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzarella (it's very mild and sold in tubs soaking in water - not the brick of mozzarella), sliced red onion, and fresh parsley. Toss it all in a vinaigrette made of olive oil, white wine vinegar, fresh chopped oregano, and freshly ground pepper. Sooooo goood!

Salad copied from a restaurant in Banff:
mixed baby greens, toasted pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, sliced red onion, sliced tomatoes, and a good raspberry vinaigrette. Delicious served with pork chops or turkey.

Fruit Salad:
Wash and chop up whatever is ripe. (mangoes, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, grapes, kiwi, mandarin oranges, pineapple, apples, peaches, etc.) I like to add pecans and coconut sometimes.
A dressing or dipping sauce can be made from sour cream and honey mixed together. Simple and Mmmmm....

We eat lot's of salads, except for our son.
My husband has always liked salad. He had to eat salad out of my sight when I was pregnant with Jenny because I would barf if I even smelled it. Was all day sick for 5 months. Good thing he was looking forward to our 1st baby!

Oof, the man gets cranky when we run out! But I am glad he likes to eat good.

I love a good salad too.... I love the salad at the Olive Garden

On my salads I love lettuce, cauleflower, broccholi, thinly sliced cucumbers and radishes, cheese, hard boiled eggs, red kidney beans, olives, croutons, and bacon bits topped with a creamy ranch dressing... yummy and a meal in itself.... I also like Paul Newman's garlic and parmasian, or Itailian dressing...
