In our house we call that...a salad. We've always had an assortment of things in our salads. Our former neighbor, however, liked what his wife referred to as a "Honeymoon" salad - lettuce alone.

Thanks for asking ladies..

When I say "glorified salads" they are made by SousChef. For some reason I hate to make dinner salads. You guys guessed right, they have all the usual suspects and odds and ends of various combo's but the one constant is they all must have pickled beets..always.
When I refer to tri colored rice, it's this remarkable yummy stuff that's a pantry staple here. I usually add some dried mushrooms to the mix.

"Glorified" salad sounds so much better than what we call ours sometimes: garbage salads. However, NO garbage was used in the making of those salads.

I see a trip to TJ's in my future.

I wish TJ's wasn't so far away. They have such interesting stuff.

Did the Hellman's mayo Parmesan Chicken - one of my wife's favs. Caprese salad and steam cauliflower.

Amen to that. Our nearest TJ's is 2.5 hours away.

It seems so unfair! I have two Trader Joe's within 15 miles.

I did see some gourmet rice blends in the supermarket, you might take a look.

I haven't a clue where one would find black barley and Daikon radish seeds to make your own blend but it's a wonderful combo with the brown rice. The texture is what makes it remarkable. There are no flavorings in the bag.

The ones in our area are 17.4 and 21.5 miles away, but traffic is horrendous and the "closer" one requires a toll of $3+, so I don't get out there much. Maybe I could consider it a day trip and have lunch out there, too

KL, I tried that rice blend which was recommended by a DF, but not a fan.
I do buy many products from TJ's and we too are fortunate to have FOUR stores in our area!
I was sad to find out that one of my go-to items has been discontinued *sniff*
