Even now, at our age 46 and 50, we still get yelled at by our mom when we sneak into the kitchen, when no one is looking, and reach to the bottom of the salad to grab the ' good stuff' before dinner starts.

Not that special but I love red onion and sweet bell pepper on a garden salad. I also like a handful of "spring greens" or whatever greens mix I grab at produce counter. I like dried cranberries or cherries, sunflower seeds. One or two small slices of cheddar cheese on the side to take a bite from now and then - maybe a slice of deli ham cut into small pieces. Nothing too adventurous, but more than just the lettuce and tomato basics.

Doesn't a plastic container with a lid to shake up the salad mean you have an extra container to wash?

I make the vinaigrette in the salad bowl, add the salad ingredients, and toss it well with the large salad fork and spoon that are used to serve the salad. I often toss after the addition of each ingredient.

I like to shred some cold, leftover salmon over plain green salad.

Leftover fish and canned fish I cannot eat. I will take leftover beef/turkey/chicken/pork and add those to a salad, but can't eat leftover / canned fish. The chickens like leftover fish.

I have a wonderful Chef's salad with a salmon filet on the top at Denney's the other day.

I make tuna salad and put that on a greens salad or shredded cabbage. The Tuna salad I make with a lemon and garlic vinaigrette.

I'm likely to put most anything on top of a salad.

I used spaghetti sauce, diced pepperoni, Parmesan and shredded mozzarella on top of grilled romaine a couple of weeks ago. The topping was hot. It was wonderful.

I also like a good spinach salad with bacon dressing and diced HB eggs.

We have been known to make supper out of a loaded salad with a portion of tuna or chicken salad on top.

I wish I liked soft goat's cheese because the recipes and salads look gorgeous but I can't bear the smell of goat that most of them have (the exception is Ribblesdale, which is a very mild hard goats cheese, a bit like Cheshire in texture, but made in Yorkshire
Ribblesdale Aged Goat Gouda – Yorkshire's Finest Foods )

I prefer a simple vinaigrette dressing on my salads to anything creamy. I quite like fruit such as apples or pineapple on salads. I find lettuce very boring, unless it's cos/romaine so I like a few herbs such a mint , basil or rocket/aragula with it. I like grated carrot ot carrot "sticks" on green salad. And I like raw "baby" spinach in place of or as well as lettuce.

This might sound a bit odd, but I absolutely adore a salad with mixed greens topped with home made egg salad, fresh sliced tomato, and some hot crumbled bacon.

With the egg salad, I don't need a dressing, but one could use a warm bacon dressing or just some simple O/V or vinaigrette.

...
I have found that goat milk and goat milk cheese that is made at a goat dairy that has no billy goats doesn't have that smell. I am pretty sure the smell is contamination by billy goat aroma. It's very similar.
