    What do you like in your salad? I like mine just lettuce. And for dressings, all though I like italian and ranch, the best is Sweet Onion Vinagratte (I know thats now how u spell it)
    What do you like?

    i usually like a nice mix of greens, and some spinach. a couple few veggies, like brocoli and whatnot, then i like to add some crushed nuts or sunflower seeds, maybe some tomatos, and lately ive been getting into putting apples or strawberries in there too. and any type of vinnegrette is the only dressing i use, and i just started making an excellent peach vinnegrette, which is pure extacy.

    Well first I always start off with some red leaf lettuce.

    Then I either put olive oil and balsalmic vinegar on it, along with some red onions and oranges.

    Or, I put a sun dried tomato vinagrette dressing, with sunflower seeds and french fried onions. Yum!

    Sometimes I like to go all out and make a salad with tons of other veggies on it along with some ranch. But I usually don't like dairy.

    My favorite salad is a salad sandwich. I don't know if my family is the only one who sometimes eats these for lunch and dinner.... but basically it is what the name says. Use soft french or regular white bread and put mayonaise on it. Layer the sandwich with lettuce, tomato, red onion, colby jack cheese and whatever else you like in salads. Pour salad dressing over the salad part (maybe a tablespoon) for flavor. Top with pepper and there you go.

    As for my favorite salad... My sister makes it...

    I think she gets the Spring Mix, from the store... It has all kinds of different greens in it... Then she adds cucumber, avocado, cherry tomatoes and big chunks of feta cheese... Then, she puts Cowgirl Ranch dressing on it.

    Awesome...

    I hate to admit this, but I love that Cobb salad dressing that you get at McDonalds. Actually that Crispy Chicken Cobb salad is good all the way around.

    mmmm....i love cobb salad....but not the kind from mcdonalds...here's the original recipe for Cobb Salad which was made for the first time in 1937 at The Brown Derby in Hollywood.....

    The Original Cobb Salad
    1/2 head lettuce, about 4 cups
    1 bunch watercress
    1 small bunch chicory, about 2 1/2 cups
    1/2 head romaine, about 2 1/2 cups
    2 medium peeled tomatoes
    6 strips of crisp bacon
    2 breasts of boiled chicken
    3 hard cooked eggs
    1 avocado
    1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese
    2 tablespoons chopped chives
    1 cup (approximately) Original Cobb Salad Dressing
    Cut lettuce, half the watercress, chicory and romaine in fine pieces and arrange in a large salad bowl. Cut tomatoes, bacon, chicken, eggs, and avocado in small pieces and arrange, along with the crumbled Roquefort cheese, in strips on the greens. Sprinkle finely cut chives over the Cobb salad and garnish with the remaining watercress. Just before serving mix the salad with the Cobb salad dressing.

    Original Cobb Salad Dressing
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    2 teaspoons salt
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 teaspoon dry English mustard
    1 small clove garlic, finely minced
    1/4 cup full-flavored olive oil
    3/4 cup salad oil

    Blend all ingredients together, except oils. Add olive and salad oils. Mix well.
    Blend well again before mixing with salad. The water is optional, depending upon the degree of oiliness desired in the dressing.
