I call them 'composed salads'. There can be greens but they're usually just as an underpinning not the main ingredient. They may be served as a light meal.


A Nicoise salad is an example.
You make a good point. I do love my salads most of the time, but the cucumber salad is a nice change from 90% greens with a few things added. 🌹

I had a steamed artichoke, and a little bit of leftover mac and cheese.

It all looked so good, so I just got a little bit of everything. DH and I were splitting it, and it turned out we got 4 meals from it!

If you want to surprise your greens, give them a couple of sliced radishes. They really perk up your interest in what you are eating.

I love Reuben sandwiches. I have some sauerkraut and that is the perfect excuse to get the rest of the ingredients during my next trip for shopping. I forgot, I even have the cheese. Just need the meat and bread.

This pics is a week old, but it's what I had today. . .I can't believe I had a salad as a meal, after years of touting: A salad is not a meal, it's a promise that there is food to come.



It was very satisfying. I am slowly adjusting to more and more things that I didn't ever think I would have to adjust to.

I like the addition of blues cheese. Jazz cheese is good too.
