There have so many recalls on lettuce lately I have cut back on salads. I like all kinds of greens and grilled chicken, cheese, and ranch dressing

Lettuce, onion, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, and blue cheese dressing.  Sometimes I add leftover chicken, and croutons, of course.

My perfect salad would be a combination of romaine and spinach, chickpeas, black beans, sunflower seeds, balsamic vinaigrette, and maybe some other veggies such as carrots and corn.

Red Onions  -- my usual salad is spinach, chicken breast, avocado, red onion, & sweet potato -- usually opt for the sweet potato fries.   It's a fat burning salad :)

My favorite items for a salad are olives, cheese, spinach, different fruits, seeds and banana peppers.  I can't eat anything spicy at this time so the peppers are out.

One of my favorite things to add to a salad is spinach. It doesn't have a strong taste, but provides so many nutrients and vitamins. I also really like shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, Italian dressing or ranch, croutons, hard boiled eggs and chicken. So essentially I like a chef's salad.

I like just about everyone's list of ingredients.  I don't think there is one I wouldn't eat.  I will say that once in a while I like to add either grilled chicken, a big scoop of chicken salad, or a scoop of tuna salad.  The other ingredient I like to use at times is avocado.  I am finding I like avocado a lot!
