A Salad that Soothes the Soul

I love SALADS, but I find myself getting bored of them. I find one that I love and I eat it until I can't stand the idea of eating it again. Perhaps I should bring more variety into my life. I really prefer to have just a salad for at least one meal a day, but in order to do that I'm going to need more ideas.
I went over to the bf's sister's house for dinner on Sunday and she made the most BEAUTIFUL and TASTY salad. Of course I went out and bought all of the needed produce and will have a nice, healthy lunch every day this week.
Here are the ingredients:
Red-Leaf Lettuce
Avocado (sliced)
Green Onion
Orange Sweet Bell Pepper (I also used Yellow.)
Pecans (if you have them)
Poppyseed dressing (or any other dressing that is to your liking. They also had a ranch and some other vinagerette option, but I love poppyseed).
So if you're looking for a new salad to try out, give it a shot. You'll be glad you did, and to help me out, please tell me some of your favorite salads so when I get tired of this lovely one, I'll still have something to eat.
And Coming Soon...
Bread Recipe. The bread was a HUGE success. It got 5 stars :) I'll add the recipe soon. It was originally a recipe for 5 loaves but I don't have room to store ANY loaves, so I had one for me, one for BF, and a little baby loaf for fun.


  1. That does sound delicious. My favorite is romaine lettuce, green apple, craisins, sugared pecans, bleu cheese and raspberry vin.
    Another is baby spinach, craisins, feta cheese, tangerines, walnuts with a poppyseed dressing.
    or you can try a google search of a NY Times article - I think it was 100 different salad combinations. AND you should try Boston Lettuce. It's so delicious.

  2. Becky. Do you remember how last year for your birthday I gave you a book entitled 101 ways to make a salad, or something to that effect? Maybe you should read it. :-)
