I’m ashamed to think how many times I’ve served my husband an iceberg lettuce “salad” with cut up carrots and a splash of Italian dressing. Notice I said “served my husband” because it was way too boring for ME to eat!

But I love salad bars and have found with enough stuff in the salad I don’t even need dressing! So I am trying to keep more ingredients on hand.  Tonight for instance I mixed spinach and iceberg lettuce, carrot slices, raisins, sunflower seeds and garbanzo beans. And it was delicious!!

So here’s a list you can keep on hand to inspire you to get out of the
boring salad rut:

Greens: iceberg, spinach, romaine

Veggies: cucumbers, red peppers, carrots, olives, mushrooms, tomatoes,
radishes, celery, broccoli,
avocado, corn, cauliflower

Fruit: raisins, apples,
mandarin oranges, pineapples, strawberries, grapes, pears, cranberries

Beans: garbanzo or Black beans

Cheese: any flavor you like, but not much

Misc: grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs, nuts
