I LOVE salads, and I have a whole philosophy of salads. But I really can't post it here because it's more like a chapter in a book.

Oh, wait! It IS a chapter in my book! See the description of Chapter 5!

Depends on my mood and what I am serving it with. If it's all I am having, I tend to want a creamier dressing. Some meals I want greek style olive oil with vinegar. With a nice roast beef dinner---NOTHING beats sweetened mayonnaise(or Miracle Whip, your preference) on a wedge of lettuce with a little fresh ground black pepper.

NOTE: sweetened mayo is mayo(miracle whip) a little milk and a little sugar.

At home, lettuce, dressing, cheese, and croutons. Sometimes some chiffonaded ham or turkey cold cuts.

At a salad bar, anything and everthing that will fit into and/or on top of the bowl they give me without falling on the floor, especially stuff that won't keep long in the refrigerator at home.

The salad I have been eating for dinner a couple nights a week lately is: romaine hearts with gorgonzola, craisins and spiced pecans with a raspberry vinagrette dressing. It is SO delicious....hmmmm.....maybe I'll have one tonight.

I really only do 1 type of salad.

Mixed field greens with "marinated" black beans and corn (I put the corn and beans in a tupper ware bowl with Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, lots of Cayenne and Onion Powder. I let it sit for 10-15 minutes). Sometimes I'll had some sliced chicken breast, and some crumbled up tortilla chips (not fond of croutons). and, always a mixture of italian and ranch dressing.

Yeah, those ginger salads are great.

I also like the bigazz salad they serve at Olive Garden. I could eat just that.
