What's Your Salad Style?

sandylc | Mar 12, 2013 07:33 PM

For along time my salads were composed of fancy greens, vinaigrettes with different vinegars, minced shallots, and mustard, and nuts, fruits, baked goat cheese, etc. Then I jumped to large, hearty, American-style salads, piled with vegetables, croutons, cheeses, and Ranch dressing (used to hate it). Now, I am a minimalist. My favorite salad is baby greens with lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. I eat it with my breakfast and it provides the most yummy fresh note with eggs, toast, and fruit.

EDIT: Throughout my salad journey I have also gone down the grain salad road - I'm not including that here because it might be another entire thread someday!

What is your salad style? Recipes always welcome!
