I love salads when I'm eating out, but don't make them often at home.
When I do, it's red leaf lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, and artichoke hearts.
For dressings I use either Caesar or balsamic vinaigrette. emoticon

It depends.

If it is a green salad I either make a coleslaw with carrot, red capsicum, spring onion, or....

a Greek Salad with variety of lettuce, red and green capsicum, spring onion, telegraph cucumber, red onion and little cherry tomatoes, and Feta, with a drizzle of Balsamic Dressing, or ..........

a Mushroom salad with sliced button mushrooms, spring onion and French Dressing .........

Kumara Salad (our sweet potato but which is different to yours) with a tiny bit of fresh chopped mint and some parsley, with a mustard and mayo mix dressing

I often have a combination of all/most of them at the one meal. The square on the smaller plate is crispy polenta - the protein was the egg and the Parmesan Cheese that I put in the Polenta to improve it taste :-)

What do you love to put in your salads?







For me: When it's a side salad, I like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, a bit of cheese and bacon bits with a few croutons.
When it's a meal, I like grilled chicken or ham & turkey, with tomatoes, cucumbers, (sometimes radishes), a sliced boiled egg, cheese, bacon bits and croutons.


PS - thanks to the Mystery Reader's team for this question!!
