Just about anything tastes great in a salad and really breaks up the monotony of plain lettuce tomato. Of course, start with lettuce as a base, but left over chopped meats, steamed veggies, water chestnuts, fruits, cheeses, even cooked dried beans and texture, protein, and nutrients.
You can even turn that "garbage salad into a complete meal by topping with quinoa or rice and protein ot chilli w/tomato, onion and a slice or two of avocado. Salsa also makes a great dressing!!!

. there are hundreds of uses - and i estimate i have saved over $5000. not buying household bags.
I was always taught to clean my plate so I wouldn't waste food. Then one day my husband asked me why it was less wasteful to use my body as a garbage can for food I didn't want or need. I have never, ever forgotten that. I can leave food I don't need on the plate now. I won't use my body as a garbage can.
