Sick of salad- need ideas

I've really had a hard time eating salads for a couple of weeks now. With fresh produce season just around the corner, I need some fresh ideas for making meals out of salads and greens. Thanks for sharing your tips!

I like to use a mixture of lettuces, add cabbage, radish, celery, cucumber, almonds or pecans, and some leftover meat such as chicken, steak, or pork. Seafood works too. I have used scrambled eggs or sausage in a pinch. Vary your dressing and you have endless combinations. Sometimes I add cheese.

I love blue cheese with bacon, tomato, and cucumber!

Annie's Natural Goddess dressing with tahini is wonderful!

I have been getting daikon radishes from the farmer's market for salads and hashbrowns.

How about brocolli salad:

Brocolli florets
chopped bacon
shredded cheddar cheese
mayo
vinegar
packet of splenda

Sorry, no amounts given, I just throw it together per my taste. There may be a recipe in the recipe room.

This salad is great with burgers, steaks, chicken and is very lowcarb.

Also, you might try Bruce's Mock Potato Salad.

With all the good food we can eat on this WOE, you should never burn out on any one food!

Hope this helps.

I had forgotten about broccoli salad- I ate that before low carb and loved it! I wonder if I could make a lower-carb 7 layer salad too- lettuce, peas, mayo, bacon, cheese, tomatoes- normally you sweeten the mayo with sugar but I could use Splenda or skip it. I'd "forgotten" about salads that weren't just lettuce and meat. Oooh- I need to stop by the store and make SALAD! Thank for the pick-me-up!

The recipe fot the Brocoli Salad is in the pot luck thread. I don't know how to post the link but I saw it yesterday so if it isn't on this page, it will be on the next one. I use equal parts mayo and vinegar and splenda to taste.

My favorite salad is baby spinach, a little tomato, crumbled bacon, a few sunflower seeds and blue cheese dressing. Add some cooked chicken breast and you have a meal!

This is a good salad, a little different, but it doesn't "keep" well once it's been tossed,
so make sure to have plenty of family and friends on hand to help you eat it!
(Alternatively, you can make the salad in a 13 X 9" pan, and "cut" out servings and
toss them when you are ready to eat. It will stay fresh for a few days, as long as you
don't toss it.)

I like broccoli salad too.

I use broccoli, bacon and shredded cheddar. Sometimes tomato.
For the dresing I use half a pack of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix and mayo and a dash of vinegar.

I get tired of lettuce salads also. I keep a bowl of caulifower and broccoli in the frige for my evening meal. I make a mayo dressing with a little cream and splenda, salt and pepper. It keeps for at least 6 days, and seems to get better each day. Even dh and ds love it. Especially when I get ambitious and add chopped bacon........really helps to have this in the fridge. Anything I can make ahead is great.............

Be sure to try the Tequillaberry salad on this site. Just do a search on this bulletin board and the recipe will come up. I had it for Easter and everyone loved it.
