Scrumptious Salads

We are big salad eaters in our house! This is one of my favorite
combinations and we have it a couple of times a week.
When the summer tomatoes come, they replace the strawberries.
Otherwise, it's a combination of...
prewashed bagged mesclun mix
(sometimes I add chopped romaine)
cucumbers,
onions (sliced so tiny and
paper thin that Taylor can't see them! shhhh!)
frozen peas (thaw in a
glass of warm water for a minute or two)
shredded cheese and rice noodles.
I love to whisk a quick dressing of olive oil,
lemon juice, s & p and garlic. But if it's the bottled stuff, we all
have our favorites...honey mustard, poppyseed, and ranch.

  1. Scrumptious is right. Betsy, I think this one will have to accompany the care package you are sending me! :-) As well as being so healthy, it is beautiful to look at - what a colourful combination.

    I make a strawberry, raspberry, baby spinach, green onion, dried fruit, nuts and feta salad that is quite tasty. I use a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I love salads but do not love all the prep work. Where, oh where, is my butler?

  2. I love salads. I have one that I make at home. It's super simple, mixed spring greens, cucumbers, red onion (slice and dice as ye wish), grape tomatoes and sliced olives. (I could probably put 'better for me' stuff in it ... but doggone it I'm gettin' the greens right?)

    Our local grocery store also has an AWESOME salad bar, when I go there to get my salad, I put the above in, with some sprouts, shredded cheese, cubed turkey and cubed ham and some chopped egg. Ta da!!! Yumm OH!!!

  3. I love salads. Greek salad, 7 layer salad, broccoli salad, spinach salad, they're all good. I really love strawberries in a salad.

    Lavinia is right. You take fantastic pictures of food.

    Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.;))

  5. You can't beat a good salad in my book! Solar makes a wonderful salad with spinach, strawberries, and sliced roasted almonds! Top with vinaigrette, yummy! Have you tried the salads at Cheesecake Factory and LaMadeline? They have become a shopping tradition for us!

  13. Looks like fabulous flavor combinations!

    I was suprised to see a brunch quiche in Aprils Better Homes and Gardens Magazine that paired berries with bacon! I'm curious as to how that would taste....salty sweet...probably great!
