Salad Bar Combos: What's your favorite?

kellyray | Jan 3, 2012 12:14 PM

So...just started working at Genentech, and my nearest cafeteria has a pretty nice little salad bar. At last peek, it included things like spring mix, romaine, spinach, and arugula for greens; beans, veggies, occasional fruits, nuts, seeds, and about 8 types of dressing; croutons, eggs, tofu, little shrimp, etc. etc.). The problem is, I have absolutely no intuitive sense about which things will go with each other. Which means that I usually just end up with the same garden-style combo (greens, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, etc.)

I'd love to hear suggestions of your favorite flavor combinations. I'd even be open to suggestions for augmenting the existing bar with items from home (I have access to a small fridge, microwave, and toaster oven).

Thanks!
