    What veggies do you like in your green salad?

    Everything and anything. I often do what I call "kitchen sink" salad, and throw in whatever leftover veggies (raw or roasted) I have in the fridge. Roasted zucchini or brussels sprouts are great. And, I love putting in chopped green onions.

    Lettuces, carrots, turnips and always pineapple. I discovered that pineapples or oranges can add fabulous flavors to a simple green salad. Happy Valentine to you moonfairy!

    Cucumber, cabbage, lettuce, carrots, spring onions, mint leaves----OH! there are so many more. I just love salads. I also add roasted seasame seeds, flax seeds and roasted peanuts into it. A little bit of yogurt for binding---so tempting!

    My standbys are spinach or spring mix, tomato and cucumbers.  Sometimes I'll add corn, chickpeas, roasted squash etc.  The one thing I definitely do NOT put in my salad is bell peppers. I detest bell peppers.

      I take it that even if you had a fence, the critters could climb under. Alas! sad

    I like to put in some marinated artichokes and stuffed olives along with roasted peppers. It all adds a zesty flavor to salads.

      That sounds yummy. Sometimes I toast garden-grown garlic to add to our salad....which usually my husband and I eat, but not my daughter.

    My salads are pretty simple. I like spinach leaves, cucumbers, and carrots. I will also put apples and strawberries with the spinach if I feel like something sweeter.

    I buy whatever looks fresh at the market. We usually start with either Romaine or leaf lettuce then I add sliced radishes, tomato wedges, diced red pepper, chopped celery, grated carrot, crunchy tart apple, dried cranberries and toasted almonds or pine nuts. We enjoy the salty/sweet combination. Then I dress it simply with either balsamic vinegar and olive oil or a garlicky homemade dressing. Yum! So healthy and tasty.

    My boyfriend and I eat alot of salads. I know the salads we eat aren't the most nutritious but we love them.

    We use lettuce or spinach, shaved carrots, croutons, jalapenos, sunflower seeds, bac-o-bits (he uses these I do not), cucumbers, sometimes a little cheese and Ranch or Italian dressing. If we have meat we'll throw some in like ham or chicken but typically no meat.

    I love peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini.  I change up with lettuce based on the freshness of product.  Lettuce doesn't stay long in the fridge and the above vegies have a great staying power.
