Salads are Super

All the salads listed in thread....SUPER. Always have romaine greens, arugula and then lots of other veggies.

Dressing: I use the cruet. Red wine vinegar, balsamic, and EVOO...add
1/2 pkg of the Italian Seven Seas spices. Shake and leave at room temp.

I never add croutons.

Don't know the graphics

Under my name section....there are three graphics. I have been away from the forums for a while.

What are they? They must have a meaning? Curious Aria

A little feta doesn't hurt.
Sorry, what are cukes?...I looked it up, they are cucumbers, right?

I don't go as crazy here at home but if I'm at a salad bar I go nuts. Along with the salad blend I add spinach if they have that and some of each of the veggies, olives, cheese, croutons, sesame seeds and usually french dressing.

I do like greek salads very much though and if the resturant has that then I'll order it instead.

Sorry Faye, no one's got back til now. Yes, cukes are cucumbers.

I like all the above, and just cukes with mayo whipped in with red wine vinegar, oil salt & pepper, but it has to sit overnight, and have italian bread for mopping.
