My salads are so random!! Never a "recipe", just what we have. LOL! But I'm rather partial to:

romaine lettuce, spinach (though I seem to have developed an allergy to it), cold cooked peas, hard boiled eggs, nuts, dried cranberries and an olive oil based Italian dressing.

My salads are quite random too. I could definitely repeat last night's though:

Mixed leaves
Cherry tomatoes
Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
Some mayo
A piece, about 4 oz, of smoked cod, microwaved - that on top of the salad was beautiful!

It's tuna and avocado glop tonight.

Eighty By Easter!!!!!

Simple but I'm obsessed with it right now. Broccoli Slaw dressed with olive oil, rice wine vinegar, and salt and pepper.

I like romaine lettuce mixed with spring mix including spinach. With TONS of chopped up veggies such as red and green bell peppers, carrots(I like chopped teeny like slivers a peeler works good and faster than a knife), radishes, onions(red is my fav) and of course cucumbers, avocado and tomatoes. And I sprinkle 4 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds on top after drizzling the dressing on so it has something to stick to. That adds 30% of daily calcium.

I really have gotten into this olive oil and vinegar dressing that is Kroger brand. I'd like to make it myself to avoid preservatives and extras but the bottled is so much easier.

One of my favorite salads is so simple: Romaine lettuce, red onion, sliced strawberries, walnuts and feta cheese with a light balsamic dressing. It's very refreshing.

Iceburg, a few crushed tostitos, light shredded cheddar cheese (melted), taco meat (or grilled chicken), black olives (sliced) tomato, reduced fat sour cream
GOAL - Lose 10 pounds 7 times!
Two down, 5 to go!
