My Kind of Tossed Salad


I love a fresh homemade salad but Chilly doesn't care too much for them. He will eat one though if I put in the things he likes. This is what I put in this salad:
Iceberg lettuce
Large Romaine lettuce
Baby Romaine lettuce
Diced Roma tomatoes
One slice of American cheese and one slice of Swiss cheese, diced
Diced bell peppers, carrots and celery
Diced ham
Dried cranberries and dried pineapple
Sliced fresh strawberries
Croutons


I mix all of this together and end up with the beautiful salad you see here. I use Italian dressing on the salad. It is a great accompaniment to all of the different flavors in the salad. This mixture makes a delicious salad. Oh, and if you love salad like I do, a glass pie plate makes a wonderful dish to make it in.

Sometimes I add crushed bacon, cucumbers, a boiled egg, or cottage cheese. I also add a few olives and mushrooms to Chillys salad as well.

What do you like in your salad that I haven't tried?

    I love putting all sorts of stuff in my salad too. I love feta cheese on my salad. I also love to mix all sorts of different dressings together.

    I love cucumbers! I have been known to eat a big bowl of cucumbers all by themselves, with just a little pinch of salt..LOL :)

    I love salads, but am too busy to make them these days. But I love a good Greek salad-- greens, olives, feta cheese, chick peas, and stuffed grape leaves. Ohhhh so good.

    I got your friend request at Facebook... I never use Facebook which is why there's no activity there. I don't ever remember starting an account there, either!! Strange... so anyway, that's why I haven't done much there. But thatnks for making me your friend!

    Our family just loves salad, I have never tried adding dries fruits in mines. I think it's a good idea. We like to add tofu in our salad.

    That's my kind of salad too and for the dressing I have to say Braswell's of Georgia Creamy Vidalia Onion is my choice. And it's made down the street from you in Statesboro.

    Looks very yummy. I haven't had a really good salad in awhile.

  • Unternehmen said....

    The salad sounds very nice and delicious. I also make tossed salad like this and I add mushrooms. My kids love to eat this salad with toasted bread.

    That is a lovely looking salad Wanda! It's so nice and colourful. I like the idea of using a glass pie pan too. Hmm, I have a Lemon Boy just ready for picking. Maybe a dinner salad is in order for tonight's meal. Thanks for the idea :)
