there are no rules with salad. They don't have to involve lettuce if that's the issue. Try a 5 bean mix tossed with finely diced capsicum and celery (whatever takes your fancy) with a bit of lemon or lime juice for a bit of zing. or just finely chop up capsicum, tomato, radishes, celery (again anything that takes your fancy) for a more salsa-like affair. ( I personally don't like oils on my salad dressing, just some nice vinegar or citric juice. orange juice is good for a change, oh and some cracked pepper)

To vary a normal salad, try mixing in some fruit - finely sliced orange, dates or apple work well.

Tabouleh (sp?) is an oldun but a goodun. Finely chopped onion (salad onion works best), tomato, lots of parsley and burghul (cracked wheat) take the bughul, soak in the same measure of boiling water (I think, but check on the packet) until absorbed then mix with other ingredients and lemon juice to taste....yummmeee!

I'm a salad person. :roll:

I used to always add a chopped up fruit in my salad. But for the past 6 months I'm still hooked on eating greek salads.
lettuce (romaine is the fav. although I use what I have)

GREEK SALAD
6 stuffed olives sliced
A chopped tomato
a few slices red capsicum
a few slices green capsicum
some chopped cucumber
some finely cubed fetta cheese (I use garlic and chives fetta)
I also leave out the finely sliced red onion
I then trickle on some Paul Newmans Own light balsamic vinaigrette.

Yummo, I could eat this salad forever.

I have a secret salad dressing recipe, but I'm happy to make it not so secret.

-equal measures of lemon juice and a good white wine vinegar
-just a bit (maybe 1/4 tsp) of olive oil that has been marinated in chilli (you can get it in those cool looking bottles with all the chillis in the oil)
-freshly ground peper and sea salt to taste

mix them up and pour over salad before the oil seperates out (works best with a greek type salad). You can substitute the lemon for any other citrus to match the meal (eg, orange if there's oranges involved) And of course vary the amounts to your preferences.

Dawn, that sounds lovely, I like the chuilli oil idea. I don't suppose you'd want to share that secret recipe on the Recipe board so we can find it easily at a later date. http://www.weightloss.com.au/forum/viewforum.php?f=9 :D
