Ok, I have to say-- I usually really don't love salad. (trying to avoid the h-a-t-e word since it's not productive). I prefer cooked veggies.

However, I'm learning that to keep cals low, salads are a fact of life. And I do know when other people make them (this is part of my "other people making food tastes better" theory...) they are pretty good.

I would like to officially endorse arugula as a leafy thing that I do actually like.


I've not had it hot yet (I've seen people mention it in stirfrys and on TV they put it on pizza... ?) but I like it as a salad base.


Ok-- threadjack over.
S.

p.s.-- why, yes... I did have caffeine today... why do you ask?

I am not a fan of most lettuces, Soren. But arugula has a nice smoky-mustardy sort of taste. I like it stir fried. I like it as a salad base. And I actually love it on pizza and in wraps.

That said, I almost never make salads, however, because in order to make them taste awesome you generally have to add a lot of calories to it and at that point I'd rather have a burger. But I am happy to add arugula to most anything.

I am one who never liked salad without a good bit of dressing, but I find that the sheer amount of veggies I can eat in a salad for so little calories and just two tablespoons of Northern Italian Light (Ken's) is very satisfying. That particular salad dressing is delicious! It's 45 cals so not really terribly low cal, but sooo much better than fat free or full fat cals. Also, garlic powder, salt and fresh ground pepper add a zing that makes it more palatable. And, if you like balsamic vinegar, you can add a dash for 0 cals to make the dressing go further.

Cindy UK- yes!

Cindy LG- i agree... My mom sometimes just does fresh garlic, s&p, lemon juice and oil, but you hardly need oil.. Or could atomize it, since some fat is needed to fully benefit from the nutrients in many veggies.

Yes, I agree, real dressings thinned down are much nicer than most low fat types. I love malt vinegar and lemon juice added to good old Cardini's Caesar.
