Yum. I love that salad too. Now you made my spring fever even worse! Can't wait for all that good fresh fruits and veggies that come with summer. Any berries!!!

I don't like much lettuce in my salad. I like all the stuff! One we make often is cukes, tomatoes, avos, pecans, carrots, mushrooms, gorgonzola, mandarin oranges and homemade croutons. I also like chicken, bacon, apple & blue cheese dressing. There's a restaurant in town that has a salad I like with jack cheese, candied pecans, frozen berries, green onions and a sweet paprika dressing. It's really good. Sometimes they put melon on it too. It sounds like a strange combo but I like it a lot.

Salad is like soup to me - no matter how many times you make it - it can always be different and refreshing, unless you choose to make it the same, and usually I don't.

I like all sorts of things except fruits, nuts, radish, cucumber, or raw onion.
I love the bagged salad mixes that they now offer, because I can get such a nice variety of greens.
One of my faves is my "Italian Salad". I marinate sliced mushrooms, black olives, and chopped artichoke hearts in Good Seasons Italian dressing. Those get spooned over the greens and topped with crumbled fresh Parmesan or Romano cheese and diced salami. Garnish with grape or cherry tomatoes.
More later...got help HB put away groceries.

Back again...I make my own bleu cheese dressing (Miracle Whip Lite, crumbled bleu cheese, little milk to thin to your prefered consistancy.) I spoon that over the greens and top with crumbled cooked bacon and grape tomatoes.

I also like Feta Cheese on salad, with black olives, grape tomatoes, chopped venison salami, and maybe artichoke hearts, when I feel fancy.

With spinach salad, I like a warm orange vinagrette, bacon, hardboiled eggs, thinly sliced red onion (I give mine to Kim), and tomatoes. (always)

Another is my 7 layer salad...iceberg salad mix, small cauliflower and broccoli florets, half a small sweet onion diced fine (onion doesn't bother me in this one), frozen peas, chopped green and red pepper, crumbled bleu cheese, chopped chicken, ham, or salami (opt)... put in large dish in layers. Cover top generously with Mayo or Miracle Whip (Lite), being sure to seal the edges. This keeps the air out and the lettuce crisp. Let stand in fridge 8 hours or more...I make it the night before. Top with grated white cheddar cheese (or your choice) and fried, crumbled bacon. Garnish with grape tomatoes and serve. (You can do this when you make the salad, but the bacon will get soggy.) You can alter ingredients to suit your taste...the method is what makes the salad great for having on hand or taking to potlucks.
It keeps, refrigerated, 3 days in good shape.
I took some to a wake recently, and here were all these meat trays, noodle dishes, slumgullion, and tons of desserts. They went after my salad with GUSTO!
Of course, they had no problem with Kim's pulled smoked pork butt and my homemade BBQ sauce, with Maull's on the side.

I can think of more salads I love, but won't bore you further
