My suggestion for a truly awesome salad is Romaine lettuce, sliced red onions, chopped Granny Smith apples, crumbled blue cheese and sprinkled with balsamic vinegar for dressing. It's sweet, savory, creamy, crunchy and very tasty! P.S. You can use the lettuce of your choice instead of Romaine and dried cranberries in lieu of the apples if you'd like.

I made an awesome lunch from the salad bar at the Reno Whole Foods today: lotsa greens, bell peppers, radishes, cauliflower, carrots and beets with some croutons and the roasted pepper ranch dressing. Yum!

Being a speech-language therapist who works in several different school locations, it's important that my lunch is portable and mess-free. This is why I bring salads to work a lot. One of my favorite salads to bring (especially during the warmer months) is cold soba noodle salad. I use 100% soba noodles (so it's gluten-free as well), julienned carrots, peppers, zucchini, and mung bean sprouts. I toss it with peanut oil and sesame oil. I usually have leftovers good for the week!

My awesome salad has whatever green needs to be eaten + steamed or sautéed green (and/or yellow) beans halved + mustard vinaigrette (or honey mustard so my son will eat it - recipes in last month's Whole Deal) + walnuts and/or goat cheese. I steam a whole bunch of green beans, and then use them throughout the week this way, and on skewers with other veggies for my son's lunch.

My awesome salad is: Arugula, dried cranberries, avocado, sliced almonds, and then for dressing I use olive oil, balsamic and a little honey. Only slicing and dicing is the avocado which, with the almonds, makes it filling. It's a quick, easy and delicious lunch!

I love to add the marinated mushrooms to an arugula mix with cherry tomatoes and grilled chicken, just a hint of the fig balsamic and a dash of red wine vinegar for zip.

I just started to eat more greens. My kitchen sink salad has green and red lettuces, green peppers, parsley or from my garden basils, sweet corn, tomatoes, carrots, water cress (my favorite and only can be found at Whole Foods), cooked quinoa, one source of proteins (ham, grilled chickens, scrambled or over easy eggs, slices of boiled eggs)... serve with spicy salsa. Basically, anything I can find in the fridge... hence the same kitchen sink salad.
