4. Lettuce + grilled chicken or shrimp dusted with chili powder + shredded cheddar + olives + tomatoes & ranch/cilantro/lime juice

5. Lettuce + shrimp + avocado + cucumber & a dressing of olive oil, white vinegar and Dijon mustard

6. Lettuce or cabbage + grilled chicken + mandarin oranges + toasted almonds & sesame seeds & a sesame dressing

7. Iceberg lettuce + crumbled bacon + tomatoes + cucumbers & chunky bleu cheese

8. Lettuce +/-  kale + sliced pear + walnuts + Gouda & olive oil/sherry vinaigrette

  1. I love salad. Could eat it every day. And the husband, who used to hate salad, has finally come around to loving salad since he’s seen the light and realized it doesn’t have to be boring and only contain lettuce, tomatoes, and a sad looking cucumber slice. Inventive salads are very much the staple of our weekly meal plans.

    1. wish my hubs would eat a salad. it’d keep me more on track if we could eat the same thing!!! 😛 please share any yummy ones you have with me! always looking for new recipes.

  2. i’m not a salad guy, truthfully, but even by my standards those look good! might have to give those a spin.

    AFTER thursday … 🙂
