What Salads Are Yummy?

Postby loveat116 » Wed Jan 23, 2008 10:05 am

Im going out to lunch today for work and I think im going to get a salad.

But i've heard caesar salads are not good for you at all! But they're the only salads i've really tried.

What are some yummy salads I can have that are good for me? I dont like cherry tomatoes or tomatoes if that helps lol?

YUM, I love my salads - esp Caesar but yes, it is SO bad...might as well have a burger!

I agree - maybe a warm chicken / beef salad. My advice though when ordering a salad anywhere, is to ask for the dressing on the side. If they put HEAPS of full fat dressing on it, it defeats the purpose.

I went to Primo and thought I was doing the right thing by getting the salad and the amount of dressing on it made me feel sick! I could've had the chicken parmigiana for all the calories and fat I must've consumed!

Enjoy!

Oh cool... I might get a warm chicken salad then with dressing on the side.

I love french and italian dressings too.

If I get a Caesar Salad with dressing on the side (dont put too much on) should it be kinda OK?

The dressing is bad in a Caesar but so too is the bacon, the croutons and the huge amounts of parmesan cheese! Oh man...I'm wanting it now!!

It would be better with a little dressing but a warm chicken / beef salad would be much better :lol:

You have to have what YOU want though otherwise you won't be able to keep it up!

Thanks Guys!

Im going to this Cafe, honestly Id prefer not to go and just eat my own lunch! But its a lot of pastries and foccaccias and things like that.

If they dont have warm chicken salad i'll go with a greek salad!

Greek Salad is supposed to be one of the best salads for you but I've never had one (despite the fact our bistro is Greek :) OPA~)

I would go for a greek salad too, fetta is low in fat and apart from that the only other thing in it other than veges is olives, which aren't that bad either!

BTW: I LOVE ceaser salad!! yummmm but soooooo naughty!! hehe

well, being on WW, I would go for a point free salad (any veggies are point free except for pumpkin and potato) and possibly get pumpkin if they had it. With dressing on the side.

I think MOST salads are ok other than the dressing.. except for a caesar. lol.

I had a warm chicken salad with dressing on the side (french)

All these cakes and slices came out, I helped myself to 1/2 of a caramel slice. Was very proud of myself!

The salad wasn't very filling at all though, not a lot of chicken.

And the meat tasted heavily processed too.

Which is surprising cause its a french cafe/restaurant with a good rep! Someone else had a pork belly on a bed of creamy mash, looked soooooooo good!
