Just look at these pictures at be inspired. You don't need a Recipe to make a great salad. Pick a few favorite Salad Dressings. Don't do the same one every night, because then your salads will become boring. You can make a homemade Dressing;
but really, there are a lot of good ones on the Market. Don't feel guilty by using one of them.
PIck out the Greens. Remember, Iceburg Lettuce has no nutritional value; but Romaine, Spinach, Escarole, & Kale does.
Same ingredients make a great Pasta Salad. Cook the pasta to Al Dente and Chill. Then, mix the ingredients.
Canned Vegetables (Beans, Corn, Beets) or Cooked Vegetables (Green Beans) or Raw Vegetables (Tomatoes, Peppers)
I love to have some crunch in my salad: Celery, Nuts, Grated Carrots, Onion, Croutons.
My son doesn't like any fruit, but I do: Cranberries, Strawberries, Raisins, Dried Fruit
Make it the meal: Add Grilled Salmon, Fish Filet, Chicken, Shrimp, etc.
