Sheeps milk is my favorite cheese. I use that on my salads. Its crumbly like feta, but creamier and less tangy. Amazing. And 70-80 cals per oz

Elladorine - that salad is beautiful! You should have a blog. Personally that's too much fruit for me to make a salad like that- but only because of some silly restriction in my head, but if served that I'd be like yum yum.

IanG - I just googled "beautiful salad" - clicked the image area and found enough inspiration for a lifetime of salads. Sooo hungry now, mouth watering.

I forgot about the blue cheese and walnut combo! I do that too!!!!!

My dad swears by craisins on all things salad-y. He even puts them on chicken salad! I wish I liked them...

I'm bumping this just to rave about my new Toss-n-chop salad scissors that arrived today. I used them on my lunch salad, which had a lot of vegetables, then added my dressing/avocado/sheep cheese/olives and fork-mixed it. And it's amazing. These things are great.

This is a YT video that I found when I was looking around to see if they were worth it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAKOLdo8TTo

ETA: the video is for the Pampered Chef version. I got the Trudeau brand off of Amazon, but I think they're all the same, really.

I often use cooking scissors to cut my lettuce, it is a lot easier.

OK, I broke my fruit taboo and added Cape Gooseberries or physalis to my salad this weekend. Oh my goodness it was good! Tart and sweet at the same time. And very pretty golden yellow. My co-eaters did not rave over it as they should have. It was awesome.

LOL! I just read through this thread. IanG, you are quite hilarious. I love your little comments and quips every so often. Not just here, but all over the boards!

Salads ARE good. It's awesome you're so into them. I am quite envious your work has a salad bar! That's so cool!

My favourite salad is actually one I buy from IKEA (and recreate all the time at home): Spring greens, goat cheese, pecans, dried blueberries, and balsamic vinagrette. It's loaded with stuff so I keep the portion small. I find the pecans make me way more full. Gotta love that fat!

I dislike salad for the most part, but that sounds delicious!

Sometimes I add a tiny bit of Sesame oil my rice wine vinegar. It taste sooo good. And I put some sesame seeds or slivered almonds. I think I'm eating this fancy salad at a restaurant.

Have been adding broccoli slaw (organic, from Whole Foods). It adds crunch and is very filling. At first I didn't think I would like it, now I'm addicted!
