1. I decided to start eating healthier. Well last night I went to a local restaurant and ordered a salad that I really enjoyed. Mesclun, avocado, tomatoes, and hearts of palm with a light vinagrette.:drool: Another salad I like is endive with bleu cheese, pears and walnuts. These are just a few of my favorites. I would like to hear what other members like and try them out myself.:yes:
  2. i think those salads sound yummy as to be.

    but idk if with the chese and some of the extras if they are really in fact healthier
  3. I like mixed spring greens with strawberries, goat cheese, and dried cherries topped with a red wine vinegarette. =)
  4. I am nutty for salads. DH and I bar-b-que chicken on Sunday evening and I make salads for 3 nights. I use tomatos, spinach, carrots, cabbage and a nice low cal dressing..YUM!!!
  5. i usually order tuna, tomatos, corn, boiled egg with honey dijon! sometimes i throw in avocados too.
  6. I just made a salad tonight to complement my dinner
    mixed greens - cherry tomatos - shaved carrots - goat cheese - croutons - roasted almonds - dried cranberries - poppy seed dressing.
    very yum!
  7. All those salads sound delicious!

    I also like roasted pear, brie, and frisse.

    I just found this receipe online of a different salad that sounds delicious:
