Next time you make your salad, add some walnuts, seeds, and mandrin citrus fruit. It's really good.

salad - we add different things to the basic green mix, tuna, chicken sunflower seeds, cheese in small amounts
My twist is tuna fish, cheese and sunflower seeds. Salad is big in my house right now since I am eating only salads during the daylight hours in hopes to cut down on calories and reduce my gain from the holidays!!

I don't care for tuna. How about salmon? I have used that, and shrimp too.

Salad is a term applied broadly to many food preparations that are a mixture of chopped or sliced ingredients. A salad can be served cold or at room temperature, and it can also form the filling for a sandwich. Though it can be made with meat or eggs, it usually includes at least one raw vegetable or fruit, most often lettuce. Often it is prepared or served with a dressing. A salad may be served before or after the main dish as a separate course, as a main course in itself, or as a side dish. Salad may refer to a blended food item— often meat, seafood or eggs blended with mayonnaise, finely chopped vegetables and seasonings— which can be served as part of a green salad or used as a sandwich filling. Salads of this kind include egg, chicken, tuna, shrimp, and ham salad. I enjoy salads. I toss a little bit of everything in them. I like the standard..... different cheeses, hard boiled eggs and bacon bits. I am now trying to sneak more fruit into my salads with pears, apples and dried fruit. I've started adding pecans, pine nuts and almonds trying to get more protien, fiber and grains in our diets. I am not allowed to put cucumbers, squash or radishes in our salads, my hubby does not like them. When I have company over, I like to make a colorful salad by adding green, red, yellow and orange peppers. It gives the salad a nice festive flare. I like to experiment with different dressings. I had a terrific cranberry vinegrete the other night. The remainder of my family will only each ranch dressing. I prefer the vinigrete dressings because they have more zip and less calories than creamy dressings. Salads are a fabulous vitamin source, fiber and in general wonderful for your body! Be creative with your salads, with all the different veggies and toppings, no need to have the same salad 2x's in the same week.

I love cabbage salads. Not fond of lettuce. I love it with carrots, onions, and tomatoes, olive oil and salt and pepper. That's my favorite. I also like mixed raw veggies and seed and nuts with blue cheese. I made a waldorf, but I don't like the taste of miracle whip.
