Welcome to Discuss Cooking bamagurl.

For me, a properly cooked French Onion Soup is worthy of being a meal in itself.
I just serve some kind of a glorified green salad with it.

Wlcome

I agree with you Kayelle. A good Chef's Salad. When I want to serve a salad that they can't forget, I go along the prouce department and let my mind loose. Radishes, cukes, a different type of lettuce other than iceberg, grape tomatoes, anything that catches my fancy. For the cukes, I peel it so that every other line when sliced is green and it looks stripe. I also run a fork down the cuke all around it. I slice the radishes really thin and remove some of the skin on them also. Shredded carrots done on the box grater. I want the salad to be colorful as well as tasty.

A fruit salad could serve as a second dish and dessert!

Whenever I eat French onon soup it seems to preclude a nice rare piece of beef. And that precludes a nicely made Black Russian for "dessert". It is one of those things I never vary from.

Don't you mean "includes".
