Salad


I hate salad! But i know i need to eat it. so can anyone suggest any ways to make salad more eatable, because the little cartons of 'ready to eat' salad she buys are driving me crazy!

    little bit of olive oil and a little bit of vinegar...gives it a bit of taste

    well it depends on the salad! some are really boring. a good nicoise (with tuna, olives, boiled egg, maybe potato) is lovely.

    Avoid those 'ready to eat' salads like the plague, they are washed in water with twenty times the chlorine of your local swimming pool to clean it, not to mention they are expensive and have a shelf life way beyond what is possible naturally.

    olive oil, pepper, balsamic vinegar, tobasco and boom, nice salad.

    could always add chicken, smoked mackarel, slices of beef.

    also the nicoise as big mal pointed out, corrr, thats lush, especially with about 100g of rice instead of potatoe mixed it, maybe even fresh salmon too mmmmmmmmmmm

    thx some good ideas there.

    that sounds esspecially nice. i eat rice almost every lunch time so that would mix in with my diet no bother.

    so its best to buy all the stuff seperatly and make my own yeah? sorry but i never NEVER eat salad so im a total newbie to it!

    Yes, definitely though lettuce and suchlike aren't worth bothering with from a nutrition point of view since you'd need a bucketful to get anything worthwhile - spinach leaves are a better and tastier choice.

    I mix Olive Oil, Diijon Mustard and White Wine Vinegar together then chop up some spring onions and add this as though its your salad dressing, its great and tastes really nice, put some fresh pasta in it too and its even better.

    Pouch (sp?) some chicken, allow to cool and chop up add this to the salad along with honey and dijon mustard and white wine vinegar and hey presto you have.....

    Optional you could add some toasted Pine Nuts too.

    i use the 'be good to yourself' vinaigerette (sp?) from sainsburys, suprising tastey. I used to use olive oil and malt vinagar too, also very tastey. A little bit of spring onion makes a big difference too.

    I like sliced tomatoes with some extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with pepper and onion chopped in half and sliced with maybe some chicken and a glass of water, sometimes when I do few spuds with a piece of chicken this is what I have a salad, tastes nice.

    Can always replace it with vegetables you like instead.

    Last night for my tea i tried a stir fry instead of salad and it was a million times better!! It had bean sprouts in, shreaded cabbage, red peppers, and carrots in. plus i grilled some chicken and sliced that into it! lovely!

    question is, is that kinda stir fry just as good for me as a salad?

    its even better than a salad!

    although having a stir fry every night will get boring. try and get two stir fry recipes, two salad recipes and alternate every night. wont be so boring.

    why do u feel salad is so necassary??

    it aint IMO!

    spinch can be added to most foods, takes on the flavour of the food so no prob there.

    leiutice in snadwhiches (if u eat them)

    most other ingredients (sweetcorn, nuts, etc etc) can be eaten with other meals and eat more veg instead!

    Disagree, even if just from a fibre point of view.
