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!! patti

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.
