I love a good taco salad: greens, black beans, corn,  some jalapeños. ..you can throw chips on it if you want, and use chili, or seasoned meat, or Catalina works great.

I also love spinach with oranges,  strawberries and almonds with poppyseed dressing

ClaudiaKishi:  there is an Argentine restaurant that layers french fries on the bottom, a lovely green salad with cherry tomatoes and mustard vinaigrette in the middle and a churrasco on top. The steak juices blend in with the dressing and fries….heaven!

 

But that is probably not the kind of salad you are looking for. 🙂

My favorite go-to salad is spinach,/romaine, candied pecans, dried cranberries, diced pear, diced gruyère (or goat cheese or blue cheese), with a raspberry vinaigrette or:

1 part apple cider vinegar, 3 parts evoo, 1T Dijon, 1 T maple syrup, a smashed garlic clove, s&p. Shake in a jar to emulsify. Adjust measurements to taste. 

This is the salad that’s on the menu this week with a grilled chicken breast:

Baby spinach and arugula with cucumber, carrots, baby bella mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and almond slices.  For dressing I mix light olive oil with white balsamic and a pinch of sea salt.

Roast slices of sweet potatoes (I use a potato peeler to get them real thin) and walnuts in the oven, add some prosciutto near the end. Toss with greens of your choice and a bit of cheese. Dress with a vinaigrette of lemon juice, mustard, salt, and evoo.

Rocket leaves, avocado slices, roasted cherry tomatos, shredded carrot, red pepper slivers and pesto dressing (I just add more oil to a regular basil and cashew pesto base).

I could eat this all day every day.

serendipityz:  that salad is how I got Fiance to start eating vegetables!! He loves it. 

ClaudiaKishi:  my go to salad with protein is baby spinach pre washed organic with hard boiled eggs, red onion slices, shredded mozzarella cheese and sunflower seeds with a raspberry vinaigrette or light caesar.

My favorite salad is candied walnuts or pecans (which I make with agave so they aren’t horrible for you), spinach, gruyere, pear with champagne vinaigrette.
