I make my salads in various ways, depending on my mood.
Sometimes with protein (chicken, tuna) sometimes without.
In general, I don't like tomatoes in my salad, if there's lettuce in it.
I love making salads with just cukes, tomatoes, and onions, marinated in balsamic vinegar and some oil
I love argula, and put in not just in salads, but in pasta dishes (I wilt the argula)
For lettuce, I like romaine and field greens, spinach.
I'll put in nuts, seeds, blueberries, different cheeses, good black olives, red peppers, etc. Anything that feels right at the moment.
This is my favorite dressing at the moment....Girards's Champagne Dressing. Good lord it's good!
I just bought their french dressing, and did not care for it at all, but the champagne dressing is all that.
