Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cheese, bacon bits, chicken. I don't like weird stuff on my salad.

Try adding cut up fresh broccoli, flavored cranberries (cherry and orange are my favorites), pecans, and either cherries (tart pie filling) or mandarin orange slices... top with a fruit flavored vinegrette/oil dressing. This actually makes a great salad all by itself!

I love Romaine, but I hear there is an e coli outbreak. So no romaine until that is under control.

Strawberries, mandarin oranges, grapes, pecans with raspberry vinaigrette.

Sometimes quinoa or black beans or sliced almonds.

My personal favorite baby spinach salad recipe

baby spinach
dried cranberries
goat cheese
walnuts
balsamic vinegrette

Some things I like in my salads include

goat cheese
feta cheese
blue cheese (like gorgonzola)
chick peas (or hummus)
roasted chick peas (I get these from an Indian market)
black beans
marinated artichoke hearts
marinated mushrooms
sunflower seeds
walnuts/almonds/pistachios
dried cranberries, raisins, dates or figs (I cut them up into small pieces for topping)

I usually use romaine or baby spinach, but have recently started using red/green cabbage sliced thin. adds lots of fiber.

If I'm living large, I like smoked salmon in my salads for my protein. otherwise, it's a little shredded chicken or ham.
