I cut up whatever fruit I have in the house. Apple, banana, peach, grapes, orange, etc. I insist on including an orange but the rest can be varied. For dressing mix a capful or so lemon juice with a couple of Tblsp. honey. Stir in a couple shakes of poppy seeds & toss on the fruit. I make enough for one meal.

Quiltingcandy-I love anything that some one else makes . I hate to cook so I pick easy meals to make. I just made a taco salad and really enjoyed it.

That BLT salad is so good!!! Yum. We make it too.
Also we sometimes make shrimp salad over salad greens with whatever goodies are on hand. I also love summer salads!
All the recipes here sound wonderful.

Actualllllly ..... it's too good! I can get carried away and eat way too much!!
Is that possible for a salad? yup!

Sadly, SusieQOH, I can't enjoy your shrimp salad ... allergies here ... so you can have my portion!

Another simple salad that works year round ....... Marinated Veggies
Chop up whatever you like. Use Italian Dressing for the marinade.
Serve as is, or over salad greens.
Top with some protein. My top choices are feta and/or chick peas.

When I saw "Mango Pineapple Slaw" on a menu, I had to try it. Delicious. Unfortunately, coleslaw will never be the same for me again!
At home, I mince fresh pineapple in my regular coleslaw. Haven't tried adding mango...yet.

My favorite salad is one made by someone else!!!😁😁😁. They just seem to taste better. Actually I like Caesar salads without any meat (no, Iím not vegetarian, just donít always want meat in some salads). I also like taco salads without hot peppers. And I love good chicken salad - I want to be able to see the chicken in the salad - not all mashed up. Iíll eat tuna salad but I donít make it - had tons in my college days as tuna was really cheap back then. And please donít give me any kale - yuck!! I wonít eat cooked spinach but I do like baby spinach, field greens, etc., plus to stores, onions, black,olives, good croutons, garbanzo beans and a few other things,

itís really interesting to hear what others like to eat. Iím pretty easy but I wonít eat peas - those little round ones. I love snow peas though. Weird!!! And edamame is super just by themselves.

Making coleslaw I like to shred up a small amount of broccoli with the cabbage.
