  • What do you put in a tossed salad that makes it interesting?????
    I was just wondering what different things people put in their tossed salad to make it interesting. I made a salad for lunch today, and this is what I put in it. Lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cuke, green pepper, carrot, celery, cheddar cheese, orange slices, kidney beans, croutons, and a homemade dressing that consisted of oil, cider vinegar,parsley flakes, salt, and sugar. Boy that was some salad. Better than you can find in any restaurant.

    I try to use a little bit of lettuce, so that way that's not all I taste. Cherry/plum tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumbers, deli meat, Chinese noodles (for a nice crunch), cheese, and either ranch or French dressing...maybe both.

    I love lettuce salad (Iceberg) with green pepper, celery, green onions, shredded cheddar cheese and crushed taco chips. Then I eat it with salsa and sour cream for the dressing. (it's a meatless taco salad).

    Sometimes I'll add chopped broccoli and cauliflower too!

    This is great. Love your ideas. I always like to try something new. It takes the boredom of eating. Thanks again.

    We throw in whatever is in the house :-) I'm a little more picky, but DH will eat anything. I love making big salads for dinner - Yum!!

    On any given day, this is what can be found in our salads: tomato, onion, garlic, cheese, ham, turkey, chicken, radish, carrots, cabbage, cukes, squash (when in season), sunflower seeds, bacon bits, croutons...

    for dressings I like ranch, italian and Green Goddess. DH likes italian and Balsamic Vinegar & Oil.

    My 4 year old DD and I are crazy about salad. I like to use head lettuce, romain lettuce, eggs, carrots, celery, croutons, sunflower seeds and here is the strange part, we like to have STOVE TOP STUFFING (before it is cooked, just the dry stuff) sprinkled on the top of our salad. It is like croutons, but it has spices and seasonings. It is very yummy!! And sometimes cheese too!! :)

    All of the above and add to it leftover cooked veggies from the previous meal, sometimes I'll add a can of mixed vegetables.

    My very, very favorite salad is:

    Iceburg lettuce
    tuna
    hard boiled egg
    sweet pickle relish

    Mix it up and eat it... the pickle juice makes enounh dressing for me! I serve it with butter crackers.
