I usually make a salad of lettuce, etc. Then I try to vary the protein by adding one or more of the following:
chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
tuna, (rinsed and drained)
sliced hard boiled egg
pickled beets
three bean salad

for a quite different salad..... try a mix of :
chopped broccoli,
cranberries (flavored are great!!),
pecans (or other nuts),
orange slices (or other fruit for the flavored cranberries...)

Put together with a bit of sweetened mayo, or your favorite low cal dressing. Chill several hours.

Another great mix is: apple/carrot/raisin/walnut salad.
And our other standby is: light lemon jello with shredded carrots and canned pineapple tidbits!!

This is making me hungry!! think I'll make one for dinner tonight!!

raw chopped spinach
minced garlic
red wine vinegar
cucumber dressing (make in blender with cucumber, water, salt, pepper, drop of stevia)
pink wild-caught salmon, flaked

mix all together well.

I need new ideas for my salad. I bore easily, so I try to change it up. My normals are grape tomato, colored bell peppers, tuna/chicken/lean deli meats, cheese, mushrooms, cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, olives..not all at once, I change it up sometimes.

I also like deconstruct the salad, meaning, I will just have a plate of grape tomatoes, half of bell pepper, a couple of slices of ham, stick of string cheese, etc.

Any good ideas?
