I also do taco salads instead of tacos on tortillas.
I've been trying to make salads my after-work snack.

hi make your meats rice and veggie and use the larger pieces of lettuce as works really well.

Yes, make taco meat and have a salad that way, or use grilled chicken, or anything that will give you a good rounded meal.
I am single, and I do love salad, but I feel like if I buy a bag of it, and don't eat it within the first day or so, it just goes to waste. I HATE that! LOL!
And it kinda has a funny taste to me, so I have to wash it after I dump it out of the bag.

I like that idea, Sveltesharon. As a single person, that's why I don't buy heads of lettuce. emoticon I either do the salad bar at the grocery store or do take out or buy it in the bag. It's more expensive that way but then you don't have left over.

Maybe you can brown some ground beef, add whatever spices you want, and serve it on the lettuce. Depending on the shape of the leaves, they can be edible plates or cups. Also, if you decide to make the beef really spicy, the lettuce would be a cool & crunchy contrast to the tender beef.

Hi All!

It's just my husband and me at home and recently we bought a head of Romaine lettuce to have on sandwiches, burgers and for salad to give us a bit of an extra nutritional kick.

But now here's the dillemma, the sandwich stuff and burgers are eaten, I'm sick of salad and am looking for new ideas to use up the head of lettuce. There is just over half of it left so it's quite a bit. I was hoping that someone out there had suggestions of what to do with the leftovers so they don't go to waste. We love fresh veggies, just want some new ideas.

Any suggestions?
