So you probably wouldn't be interested in my Chicken and bananas recipe.

Try creamy dressings, they make the salad taste like heaven.
Try adding toasted bread on top. Love the crunch.
Don't just make a plain salad and don't add all the vegetables.

Try Asian salad where the add noodles.

Maybe you can get him a shot on a V-8 Fusion commercial. Even if he doesn't get the part, you still get to smack him in the head.

I wouldn't push veggies on someone who doesn't like them.....it just encourages that 5-year old childish behaviour.

I would still make a big salad every day though, and place two portions on the table, take my share.....and if he doesn't go for it, say: "oh goody, all the more for me". If he sees you eating vegs with gusto every day, he may one day wonder what he's missing and try some. But I wouldn't make a big deal of it, lest it encourage the inner 5-year old.

Funny, I don't like any of the creamy dressings. Asian salads are pretty yummy!

I have an issue with husbands who will not even try. The issue is, tough ****. Take out life insurance and let him eat as he wants to. He wants to eat like a 3 year old whose parent indulge him, go for it. Just keep the insurance premiums up. Every time a health issue came up for my husband, I told him that I love to cook, but hate doing math. You do the math, I'll fix what you need. The control (since he loves my cooking) is in his hands. I'll work around it. But I refuse to be his jail-keeper, or turn cooking into a daily problem. A math problem at that.

I used to hate salads too.

I'd disguise the salad by adding some meat to it. Try adding lots of grilled chicken strips.
Also add things other than vegetables. These are my favorite:
-Cranberries. Make almost every salad tastier
-Nuts. I like walnuts. They give a nice flavour.
-Seeds. They give the salad some crunch.

Try it. If he won't eat it, he's a hopeless cause.

When my girlfriend's husband was first diagnosed, he was checking his sugar constantly. Drove her crazy. She is a lawyer and he is disabled plumber. He does all the cooking. So for about a month he did good. Then he got bored with all of it and ran out of strips. His wife said they were too expensive to buy and she couldn't afford them. He hasn't checked his sugar levels in over a year. And he is right back to all of his bad habits. Including a can of beer in his hand all day long, every day. She doesn't seem to care. I expect to hear that she has been diagnosed also. These two folks are a disaster waiting to happen. They are in for a shock when they both end up in the ER.
