    what do you put in a really good salad?

    i never really ate salads until i purchased a share in community supported agriculture and soon discovered that, especially in the spring, a good portion of the harvest was salad greens. sunday's share inclued red leaf lettuce, radishes, garlic greens, and green onions. i grated in a little carrot and tossed the whole thing with a homemade cultured soy "yogurt"-dill dressing and sprinkled on some sesame wheat sticks...mmmmmmmm! so good!

    i'd say the main thing that makes a salid good is lots of different kinds of veggies. a so called salid that is nothing but a couple of kinds of lettuce with some kind of dressing on it may taste ok but is basicly phoney crap. a real salid has all kinds of things in it, tomatoes, shroomies, maybe cheese, pasta, even some kind of meat if you're into that kind of thing. i don't think i'd call any kind of salid 'bad', just the ones that don't have much varity of different stuff in them are just, well pathetic.

    The finest salad that I know of is a Fench creation known as salade ni├žoise. No two people make it the same way. Mine is made with spinach, Bermuda onion, black olives, canned tuna, tomato, red pepper, hard boiled egg, chick peas, boiled potatoes, salt and pepper, mayo, oil and vinegar. You can add to it or remove things you don't much care for. When I make it, it usually lasts about a week.
  4. Salads are SO yum!!! I love lettuce, avocado, capsicum, cucumber and a really nice dressing in mine. :)

    my hubby makes some really good salads. he does these spiced sunflower seeds and puts them on top of the salads while the seeds are still hot. it's sooo yummy.

    Salad is how I made humans to be fed on.


    Other than that, fish can be acceptable.

    I just don't really enjoy when you race blast a little Bambi to kingdom come with a cut 22. caliber.

    i hate bagged salads. they scare me!

    once i was at a denny's and i ordered a salad. it had been bagged, and was old, and there was a disgusting, slimy gray rotted lettuce leaf right in the middle of it. we complained, and they were just like, oh, sorry, but what do you want? we wrote to headquarters and complained. that denny's was eventually shut down, for lots of other reasons. it was pretty horrible.

    but i can't eat salads at restaraunts anymore, unless they're like the fresh mesclun salad i get at the atmoic eggplant, where i know the cook, and where she gets the greens. most of the salads at so many restaraunts are bagged. ugh!
