I have become addicted to making a "big salad" nearly every day for myself. (and when I hear big Salad - it makes me think of Elaine on Seinfeld.) (And if you don't get that reference or never watched Seinfeld - I just don't know what to think about you.)
Anyway - I keep trying to come up with new and fun things to put in my salad. I usually grill some steak or chicken to put in there and then just anything else we have on hand. My favorites right now include:
Avocados (because I would eat avocados on anything in any way)
these amazing Parmesan almonds that I found in the salad section - I'm dying over them.
Egg whites (I know - eggs make me gag but for whatever reason I like boiled eggs - just the whites)
Now - here is the question - what do you like in your salad? I'm trying to think of new things to try. I wanted bean sprouts so badly but couldn't find any.
My other favorite thing I haven't done lately is pickled okra. (Come to momma pickled okra).
I will try whatever you suggest (well maybe whatever. Let's see what you say).
And just another random note on salads:
My BFF Laurie would rather be shot than have to eat a salad. Somehow we are still friends. She also hates sandwiches with a passion and I'm like Joey on "Friends" - I'm in love with sandwiches.
And there is some Salad place in the mall at North Park in Dallas and I had the best salad of my life there at Christmas - with GRILLED avocado. I wish I lived next door to there.
