I love all sorts of things in my salad including, but not limited to all sorts of veggies, beans, meats, cheeses, things like artichokes, olives, nuts, seeds, and just about anything else you can think of.

I've only had my salads a certain way all these years. Haven't been real adventureous. Carrots, ham bits, cheese, radish and a little bacon bit's with Blue cheese.

Whatever we find fresh and in season... I also like some radicchio shredded in, paired with shredded carrots, the combination of the kick radicchio has and the sweetness of carrots is brilliant.... I don't like strong flavoured dressing very much, I prefer just with good evoo and s&p, this way the taste of the vegetable is nicely enhanced, rather than drowned in the dressing.

Another "whatever is on hand" salad lover here. I really like mild lettuces like lamb's leaf and buttethead, carrots, peppers, radishes, seeds and nuts, cubes of cheese, shredded meat, olives, raisins, fresh fruit - it's all good in my salad bowl Olive oil can be nice, I agree (especially with a splash of balsamic) but I do love dressings as well. Especially a good French, Catalina, Russian, Ranch, sun dried tomato, honey mustard or caesar.

"Whatever" salad lover here. As long as it is something I eat, I will eat it in a salad, and not many things I don't eat.

I like salad period You can load it up with everything and I'll eat it. But my favorite salads..I have two, the first is escarole, with sun sweetened juicy tomatoes and red onion slices, drizzled with evoo and a nice red wine vinegar. The second is summer heirloom tomatoes,sliced mozzerella, fresh basil leaves, drizzled with evoo and some really good balsamic...YUM
