my favourite salad has a great variety of vegetables and fruits . i sliced cucumbers, cabbage,carrots, parlsey, caulifowers, thinly sliced bombay onions , red and green capisiums, boiled sliced mushroom and small tomatoes, sliced pears and apples and put all these into a plastic bag and chilled them. i do shredded chicken .i prepare the sauce, that is thousand island sauce. i take out from the fridge the portion of chilled vegetables and fruits that i need and mixed with the shredded chicken and pour in the thousand island sauce and top up with dried raisins and nuts and viola . i eat with my favourite yoghurt. a very delicious and healthy diet . try this out and see how you fair.

I love chicken macaroni salad, potato salad, and veggie salad. I actually like any salad. They are easy to make and very healthy to eat. I am not sure if this would help your diet but I used to buy tortillas and nachos, sliced tomatoes and lettuce, and top it with caesar sauce. It's crunchy and a nice thing to eat while enjoying a good movie.

My favorite salad is Caesar Salad. Just romaine lettuce with or without croutons. Make a dressing of garlic mashed with salt, add pepper, dijon mustard, tabasco, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, parmesan cheese and the yolk of a coddled egg. Omit anchovies since you're veg. You can omit egg yolk, too, but the dressing won't be as rich. There are several other salads you can make, including the following: mixed greens, scallions, avocado, raisins, dried cranberries, candied pecans, apples, mandarin oranges, blue cheese. Use a citrus vinaigrette or blue cheese dressing if you eat cheese. You can also make a Chinese chicken salad without the chicken, just lettuces, cabbage, almonds, mandarin oranges, wonton noodles, sweet plum dressing.

I like to but like three kinds of different lettuces, wash and drain the lettuce all of them , the little cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red peppers, and salt and pepper for the seasoning mix and stir and it is so good with your choice of dressing.

Greek salad is my favorite. Romaine lettuce, red onion, olives, feta cheese and I use an olive oil based salad dressing. One day I threw one together and didn't have any more feta cheese so I crumbled blue cheese on top of it and it was good. Another one that I like is romaine lettuce, walnuts, dried cranberries, tossed with an olive oil based dressing and I crumble blue cheese on it as well. Yum.

I love salads but the kind I eat usually have some kind of meat in them, like chicken. But you could try to make salads with tomato, lettuce, mushrooms, black olives, and shreded cheese. Them are the type I like to eat. They are really good, then you could put on what ever kind of dressing you like.

All of them! I love salads too! I like taco salad the best I think. Just lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheese. Then throw in some ranch style beans and some chips and there ya go. Personally I like salsa on top along with black olives and avocados. I like broccoli too. I just cut up some broccoli and cauliflower, then grate a little carrot and onion then add ranch dressing and grated cheese.

The broccoli salad is my favourite. You can try it: These are my own recipes: Ingredients: 1-2 heads broccoli 1/2 cup chopped red onion 1 cup shredded cheese Dressing: 1 cup mayonnaise1/4 cup vinegar 1/4 cup sugar Directions: Cut up broccoli flowerettes into bite-sized pieces, leaving just a little stem.Cut up enough for about 4 cups of flowerettes. Add onion, cheese and dressing. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight. Sometimes I made this broccoli salad with a few extra ingredients: celery, olives, and sunflower seeds. Another of my favourites is the green salad (I always make it with Iceberg :) ) Having chosen your variety of greens,you shoulshould pick out any broken or damaged leaves, and break them up into slightly larger than bite size pieces. Gently wash your greens in a bowl of water, and dry them on a dishtowdishtowel or use a salad spinner. If you bought a bag of pre-washed greens you can skip this step.Make sure the leaves are cool and dry, as you don't want to dilute your dressing.Put the salad in a bowl and wait until you are ready to eat before adding the dressing,as it will wilt otherwise. As for dressing, a little oil and vinegar and salt to taste is all you need for a tasty, basic little salad. A flavoured vinegar is also nice, such as raspberry or garlic. I usually mix 3 partsparts oil to 1 part vinegar. A touch of salt sharpens up the flavour a bit as well. And finally you have the greatest green salad ever. Enjoy. By pcserver :)
