During the summer I love salads. They are refreshing and light when it's hot but they taste so much better if someone else makes them. I have no idea why...they just do. I guess my favorite way it enjoy salad is to go to a restaurant that has a salad bar. The one I like also has all of the goodies to make tacos plus pizza and chicken. Oh, and the cheese bread is awesome! When you go to a salad bar what foods to you take?
I start with a small pile of romaine lettuce...sorta do the Caesar salad deal. Pile on some grated Parmesan while it's near by. Then on goes the goods.... raw cauliflower, red onions, lots of olives, maybe some cubed ham, grated cheese of course, shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, avocado if they have it, maybe chopped hard boiled egg and top it all with a pile of crunchy croutons...that should do. I sometimes take my own dressing which is a fat free Caesar otherwise I use theirs lightly. Some sort of bread is a must...either the cheese bread or their soft bread sticks. Yumm-O!
What does your salad look like?
