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

I made an awesome salad/slaw the other day with purple cabbage, shredded carrots, shredded broccoli, red bell peppers, edamame and peanuts in a sesame-ginger-lime dressing.

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!!

I change all the time too. A recent favorite:

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?
