Salads without the greens

Coyote | Mar 18, 2005 12:04 PM

I struggle with salads, I really do. In restaurants I am OK with Chinese Chicken Salad, or a really good Caesar, or a well done Cobb, but that is about it. A typical lettuce, tomato cucumber salad just leaves me cold. And, I suspect lettuce isn't an especially high nutrient food anyway, as well as being a vehicle for high fat dressings. I would, however, like to make some main course salads that are not based on lettuce, or at least where lettuce is not the main ingredient, and am looking for suggestions.
