A Change from the ordinary...different salad ideas?

Titus0327 | May 7, 2012 12:18 PM

My family eats a lot of salads. Almost daily. However, theyre often very redundant. It will usually consist of a green (iceberg / romaine / or a baby spinach / arugula blend), some veggies (carrots, radishes, onions, sweet peppers, etc.) and some cheese (mozzarella or cheddar), along with some bacon bits and croutons. Then drenched in one of the many bottles of dressing lurking in the fridge. Occassionally, we'll toss in some craisins or some walnuts to change things up a bit.

Im looking for something different. Im not opposed to making my own dressings as long as they are quick and easy. I usually stick to a balsamic vinnaigrette or a lemon vinnaigrette. We're open to many different vegetables and greens, its just that theyre not usually on hand in our home. I dont wanna get too far off the beaten path here, lets try to keep it to a green of some sort and then some vegetables, fruits, cheeses. Quick dressing recipes are also appreciated. Just off the top of my head some ingredients that Id like to use more of are....kale, spinach, bibb lettuce, fennel, raddichio, any vegetable really, crumbly blue, feta, or goat cheese.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
